This recipe makes an edible cookie. However I agree with previous review: not wafer crispy and could be sweeter. Also used it in banana pudding: they remained firm/didn't soak in the pudding. With a bit of tweaking this could be a good recipe.

Made a half recipe to use in the Homemade Banana Pudding Pie recipe. Do not look like the boxed ones but still good!

Plain tasting, really dry. Need a drink after each bite. Nothing like boxed vanilla wafers. Fragile cookies, easily fall apart. Won't make again.

1st use a smaller portion than the tablespoon, you'll get more cookies. I added more vanilla and still need to add more. Not real sweet or crispy, but they remind me of the old fashioned tea-cakes. I took some to bible study and to work and got good reviews from all. I have sent the link to this recipe with others who like just a little cookie with their coffee (me) or tea. Could be a little sweeter though. This recipe was quicker than the one I saw that you had to roll and refrigerate. I might try that one later.
