These were pretty easy but they lacked flavor and weren't very pretty or "waferish". I will probably make them again only with clear vanilla and some kind of frosting. Good place to start just needs something to jazz it up a little;) Read More

I was thinking these would be like nilla wafers in the box but my family loved them. I used them with a banana pudding recipe on this site. Read More

These tasted a little like a commercial wafer but not like I wished they would have. I will continue to make these for my kids but will be on the look out for a more airy-er vanilla tasting cookie. Read More

I made these twice. First as written but the dough was awfully sticky (even after chilling 5 hours) and the cookies were not waferish and they were bland as other reviewers have said. So the second time I substituted condensed milk for half of the milk called for. I also added a tsp cinnamon. The dough was more workable but I still wasn't impressed with the results. I will not save this recipe. Read More

flavor good however i noticed they seem to be soft after time recommended for baking. However they harden as they cool down. Read More
