Homemade Nilla Wafers with a Fun Twist

Had fun adjusting two completely different recipes and using both together :-)

Ingredients:

  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • Ad
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds only
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder

Directions:

With an electric mixer, cream butter, salt, sugar and vanilla seeds. Beat in egg white. Beat in extract and milk until mixed.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder and then add to mixture. Don't over mix.

Spoon small amounts of the cookie batter on to a baking sheet.

This recipe will make two and maybe three batches so if you use two or more sheets at a time, rotate on rack halfway through. If one sheet at a time, cover remaining batter bowl with a damp rag.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 15-20 minutes, until cookies are lightly browned. Cool completely before storing.

Now for the fun if you want to do something extra

Rainbow Cookie Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
  • 3 packages Kool-aid, if 3 different flavors are desired (you will need a total of three tsp.)

Directions:

In small bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar and milk on medium speed until smooth.

Divide mixture evenly into 3 small bowls (if wanting 3 flavors). Stir 1 tsp. of Kool-aid into each bowl until mix is dissolved.

Depending on the size of each sandwich cookie, spread about 1 to 2 heaping tsp. frosting on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down.
