Homemade Vanilla Wafers may look like the commercially made cookies, but they taste better. I think you’ll enjoy this tender crisp cookie with its buttery sweet vanilla flavor. I like to make them fairly small. Perfect on their own, or I like to serve them alongside a fruit salad or a bowl of ice cream. And don’t forget to try using them the next time you make a Banana Pudding.
A few notes on ingredients. For the vanilla extract, make sure you buy “pure” vanilla extract, not the ones labeled “imitation” as they tend to leave a bitter aftertaste. Another idea is to use pure vanilla bean paste which is a thick vanilla extract with the vanilla bean seeds. I also used a combination of All Purpose (plain) flour and cake flour in this cookie batter. Cake flour is a low gluten flour that helps give the cookies a light and tender crumb. However, you could replace the cake flour with an equal amount of All Purpose Flour. And lastly, I added a little baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) to the batter as it gives the cookies their crisp edges.
