My next few posts will include the cookie recipes I have introduced to you in my cookie preview post.
I am starting with my most favorite cookies, the Cream Wafers. If you read the ingredients, you might not be able to envision how decadent these really are. They are very light and flaky, resemble a puff pastry, and practically melt in your mouth.
If you are looking for an easy, light (no butter or any other fat used) , and dainty cookies, this is a recipe for you. This is a very simple recipe, quick baking, and produces wafer thin delicious cookies. In taste, these cookies resemble lady fingers or zwieback cookies. I used vanilla extract in this recipe, but I think almond extract would produce a very interesting flavor as well.
These crisp and feather-light wafers make a great addition to a dessert platter for a tea party.
