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.

Like another reviewer, I live where we can't find traditional Vanilla Wafers & I learned to live w/it til I needed 2 1/4 cups of crumbs for another recipe. I added green food coloring cuz I wanted the color & used too much. It was pretty ugly & sat in the fridge for 2 dys B4 I decided to live w/the result & bake it. I only needed crumbs, so I took no spec care. I rolled the dough between 2 sheets of parch paper, removed the top one & baked it 15 min. Fresh from the oven, I folded the parch paper sides toward the center & the hot dough collapsed to a mound of coarse crumbs. I dumped the lot into a bowl & easily crushed them into the finest cookie crumbs I'd ever seen. The dough isn't too sweet (tasty raw & cooked). I didn't take a pic as my version is far from visually classic for the recipe. IMO your recipe is clearly indestructible & in our house we call that twissis-proof. That's my story, it's the truth & I'm sticking to it. Thx for posting this recipe. :-)
