These cookies are so good that we have to literally make a bushel of them. They eat like potato chips because they are paper thin. They are definitely worth the extra effort. Have help and make an afternoon of delicious fun. We use a pasta machine on the smallest setting for rolling strips of dough.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in deep-fryer or large heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla and melted butter until well blended. Mix in the salt and baking powder. Gradually stir in flour with a wooden spoon until dough is stiff. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead in as much flour as necessary to make a smooth stiff dough. Dough should not be sticky. Roll the dough out paper thin and cut into 3 inch squares.

  • Fry in the hot oil, turning once until golden. Drain in colander and place them into a waxed paper lined bushel basket. Dust with confectioners' sugar when cool.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

These things are great! Cooking up an entire bagful is just NOT enough to feed everyone at work (there are only 4 of us but we give them to customers too). Wholeheartedly recommended! Read More

My nana who would have been 100 years old this Christmas made these for the better part of her life. We had them every year when I was growing up and when I was raising my family. We had them at Christmas and Easter time. It was a recipe only in her head so I went in search of one similar to hers and found this one. It is very similar and what is most important about them is that when she made them she made them with lots of love and family around helping. That is what the season is about spending quality time with family making memories that last a lifetime. Read More

Our family loves wandies and instead of calling my mom to have her dig for grandma s melt in your mouth recipe I decided to try this one. I halved the recipe and the dough was too dry and crumbly to get it to come together so I added water a teaspoon at a time until it just came together. It still wasn t smooth but I didn t want to make it sticky. I rolled it as thin as I possibly could and although they were not tough they were still thicker than my expectations. Perhaps cutting it in half for a first test run was the problem and it also did not specify egg size so I just used the ones I had on hand. I ll come back with updates after my next try. Read More
