These are a delicious homemade alternative to the box of Nilla Wafers from the store. I made them a lot when Christopher was little and we had to be careful about additives from commercial products.
I'll add a picture soon.
1/2 Cup Butter, room temp
1 Cup Sugar (you could try 3/4 Cup first)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla (yes... that is Tablespoon)
1 1/3 Cup Flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Preheat oven to 350
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture.
Drop by 1/2 teaspoon for small cookies (1 teaspoon for a bigger cookie) on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges of the cookie are slightly brown.
