Picture of vanilla wafer recipe
Homemade vanilla wafers are really really simple to whip up. They'll take about a half hour to make and this recipe will make between 30-40 small cookies.

They don't taste dead on like traditional vanilla wafers because we're not using all the crazy ingredients, but I think they turned out very nice. :D

You can also make them into softer, cakier cookies by not flattening the dough before you bake it and by baking it for a shorter time. My first batch of vanilla wafers went that way and turned into a yummy mistake.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of ingredients
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted (4 tablespoons)
  • 2 egg yolks
You'll also want baking sheets and parchment paper. :)
