1 1/2 cups
sifted all-purpose flour
these turned out great!! I used the proportions given, but added the milk and extract right after creaming the butter and suga together. I also added just a little lemon extrach to brighten the flavor a touch. I then put the finished dough immediately in a ziploc bag, cut a fairly large tip and piped the dough onto my cookie sheet. Got them in my tummy faster and definitely a keeper!
Ugh, all I taste is egg. Texture is great, but too much egg.
I made these because I didn't have enough store bought vanilla wafers for banana pudding. These are wonderful. I also piped the dough onto the cookie sheet. The cookies were crisper when I baked them at 375.
Delicious, crispy, buttery little cookies! I followed the recipe exactly. However, after chilling the dough for several hours, I found that it was far too sticky to roll out, even with parchment paper or a bit of extra flour. So, like previous posters, I whipped out my pastry bag and piped out the dough directly onto the cookie sheet. It took a bit more work that way, but the result was a few batches of delicious cookies which tasted exactly like vanilla wafers should. Perfect afternoon snack for my kids and their friends, who could not stop munching them.
I don't think the name Vanilla Wafers is fitting. I was looking for a light snack cookie. These taste good (hence the 5 star rating) but not what I was expecting. These are sweeter and taste a little egg-y to me. My husband said they taste like Christmas Butter Cookies. I followed the ideas of other reviewers and piped these on to the cookie sheet right after mixing and it worked out really well.
I tried this recipe because I made 2 types of 'Homemade Vanilla Extract' from this site. One was made with vodka and one with bourbon. After curing for 6 months it was time to try it out. I chose this recipe because I could split the recipe and try both types of vanilla with the same recipe. The results were a great, crisp little cookie. The dough was very soft so I did not chill for the 1-2 hours, instead I put it in a decorator tube and squeezed it out on the cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper. No matter what tip I tried the cookies had the same result. A nice little round cookie with a smooth top. I got 7 dozen cookies with this recipe. I froze a bag of them to try a banana pudding recipe with them. My family really liked this cookie and I know I will make them again.
These were delicious! not a Vanilla Wafer but very good! mine did not get crispy but bery moist i will use this recipe again
this was great in my banana pudding, gave it a richer sweet taste
