    These are excellent in banana pudding!

    These were very tasty. I didn't follow the tsp guideline and should have, less even. I got big cookies! I skipped the zest and added more vanilla and they were still good. I used Smartbalance blend instead of all butter with good results. Mine, however turned out much flatter than those in the picture by Marsha D., but flat is what they should be. I also followed the substitution for cake flour found elsewhere on this site. Thanks for posting this. I will make it again!

    These cookies have a great flavor and love that they are dropped and not formed into balls. I used them to make Banana Pudding. No one knew that the wafers were made from scratch. Thanks Mirj!
