Vanilla Wafers are a comforting little cookie that in many instances impossible to stop eating once you’ve started.
They are most important to banana pudding in my southern world, and in my quest to make most things from scratch (i believe it’s healthier) I went on a quest to find a simple recipe to replicate the cookie.
I am happy to report that I have found it…through the many skimming of blog recipes and wonderful home cooks I surprisingly found Alton Brown had the best and easiest (by my standards) recipe. The only variance is I used brown sugar instead of his recommended vanilla sugar. *side note* I tried white sugar as well but the brown sugar gives it a softer consistency and just a better taste all around in my opinion.
I will be using these in my banana pudding this summer. Here’s the recipe.
