Homemade Nilla Wafers

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 Egg
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.

I use Nilla Wafers all the time in many recipes. I had no idea you could make them. I am going to try this recipe for sure!

I'm so glad to have found your recipe blog via your Coffee Tea Books and Me blog! Just yesterday my oldest daughter commented that the snack we were having would have been much better with homemade vanilla wafers. I told her I would see if I could find a recipe, and today I stumbled upon yours! Thank you so much :) .
