Mini Vanilla Wafers

Morsels of Life - Mini Vanilla Wafers - Basic mini vanilla wafers you can make at home.

Ever since seeing this recipe on Baking Bites, I've wanted to make Vanilla Wafers. I know it's been a few months, but it's stayed in the back of my mind. Then, I recently got a piping kit. Yay for $5 thrift store finds! I figured now's a good a time as any, so I just went ahead and made some of these mini vanilla wafers. You could go for the original, using a plain tip (or a bag with the corner cut off). However, since I'd just gotten the piping kit, I wanted to try out ALL the tips. :) My favorite? The one with all the little spikes pointing slightly inward. After they baked, they look a bit fancier and without any extra effort. Win! Make mini vanilla wafers or make regular sized ones. Either way, make some! James said they taste kinda like the store-bought ones, but better. But isn't that how home made works?

What's your favorite DIY recipe?

  7. This looks like an easy recipe and you can make the wafers as plain or as fancy as you'd like. I appreciate that you posted the mass and volumes of each item so that it doesn't matter what measure you use. See you this weekend at our Over the Moon Link Party.

  9. Yes! Fancy them up as much (or little) as you want. :) I know I like being able to choose which measurement methods without having to do all the conversions, so I thought you might too. Glad to see you like it! :)
