DIY Vanilla Wafers
  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk (or half and half)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, vanilla, and milk and mix well. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir well.
  3. Either scoop the dough into a large piping bag (or just a ziplock bag) and squeeze out rounds of dough. OR- just use a small scoop to portion 1inch rounds on a cookie sheet. Use your fingers to flatten slightly.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the bottoms begin to turn golden brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Serve or store in an airtight container.
