    These are just like the cookies we used to get in kindergarten with a glass of cold milk. Adapted from My Most Favorite Dessert Company.

      True to form. A really good vanilla wafer. Again I used a "milk free" butter substitute for my son, and they came out fine. I used lemon extract instead of vanilla (I ran out). I also used a silpat to bake them on with no problem, but don't walk away they go from pale to overdone very fast.

      Lovely!! Turned out great! I used the cookies for a chocolate truffle recipe but not before munching on one! You can be sure this will be made very often in my house in the future! I didn't use the zests as the cookies were to be part of another recipe and the citrus flavour might overwhelm it.
