    hisfavoritemavis's Note:

    I don't know why these cookies are so delicious. They don't have any exciting ingredients, just a lot of butter. The recipe comes from my Williams and Sonoma "Essentials of Baking" cookbook. I don't typically like "dry" or "sandy" cookies, but in this case, I can't keep my hands off them.

      The country where I moved to doesn't sell vanilla wafers, so any time I want to make a banana pudding I have to make my own vanilla wafers. These are very good. I bake and use them as I would store-bought vanilla wafers. My youngest son loves them on their own as a snack and I like the fact that living here doesn't stop me from making my favorite dessert. :)

      These cookies are fabulous!! My two year old and I are devouring them today!! I LOVE that there are 4 rolls to refrigerate. I baked off 2 today and froze the other 2 for another day :) I also added one packet of Oetker's Vanilla Sugar to the dough.
