I love Vanilla Wafers. I could actually eat an entire box in one sitting so I had to try to make these. I came as close as I could with these, and I can make enough to eat them without having to spend so much on the store bought boxes.

Ingredients

1/3 c
butter or shortening
1/2 c
confectioners' sugar
1/3 c
sugar
1
egg
1 tsp
vanilla
1 1/2 c
cake flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 Tbsp
water
1/8 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325° F. Cream together shortening or butter, eggs, vanilla, salt and sugars in a large bowl.
2
Combine flour, baking powder and add to creamed mixture. Add 1 tbsp of water and combine mixing until dough forms a ball.
3
Roll dough into 3/4 in balls and flatten slightly onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and cover. You can also use a piping bag with a large round tip and make a large "hershy kiss" type of cookie and pat down peek. I have done both ways and they both work great.
4
Chill in refrigerator or freezer.
5
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in 325° F oven 15-18 minutes.
6
Cool completely on rack--makes about 4 dozen cookies.
