Vanilla Wafers

🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
100 wafers 50 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🧈 1 stick (113 g) butter
  • 🍬 7 oz (198 g) confectioners' sugar
  • 🥚 3 large egg whites
  • 🥚 1 large egg
  • 🌾 6 oz (170 g) all-purpose flour
  • 🍦 2 tsp vanilla
  • 🧂 0.25 tsp salt

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 piping bag
  • 1 medium pastry tip

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F (150°C). For this recipe, I did fan as there will be multiple trays in the oven and you will want them to bake evenly.

Step 2

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy and there are no lumps.

Step 3

Slowly add in the egg whites and mix until smooth. Add the remaining whole egg and mix until fully incorporated. If the mix curdles don't worry, just give it a good whisk to bring it back together.

Step 4

Once combined, add the all-purpose flour, vanilla, and salt and mix until it just comes together. Do not overmix.

Step 5

The batter will be somewhat soft. Place batter in a piping bag fitted with a medium pastry tip. Pipe it in even mounds onto a cookie sheet (roughly 2 teaspoons). Keep cookies about 1.5 inches apart as the batter will spread when baked.

Step 6

Place in oven and bake for approximately 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.

Step 7

Once cooled store in an airtight for up to 7 days. Use for a cookie crust or for a classic banana pudding.
