In my ongoing efforts to make the majority of our food (including snacks) from scratch I tried a new recipe yesterday for whole wheat vanilla wafers. I got the recipe from Heavenly Homemakers. I used to eat just about as many vanilla wafers as I did graham crackers 😛 I lived on them for a while. Then realized how much junk was in them and haven’t had any in a long time. So I was excited to find this recipe.
Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers
makes ~55 cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sucanat or brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Cream butter and sucanat together. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put nickel size mounds on the parchment paper. I just used a cookie scoop and made little mounds.
Bake at 325° for fifteen minutes. Turn off the oven and let the cookies sit inside for a half hour or so to crisp.
