Vanilla Wafers


Vanilla Wafers

Galveston Daily News, Texas.
7 June 1930. P 14.


Vanilla Wafers are small, crisp but soft plain vanilla-flavoured cookies.

They are seen now as rather plain Jane, having given way in status to Lady Fingers.

Consequently, they are perhaps now used more as an ingredient in cooking than as an out-of-hand snack.

You can now get kosher ones, or ones from made spelt flour.

Cooking Tips

  • can be used for pie crusts when crushed, or just as a bottom layer made of overlapping-wafers;
  • can be layered together with a filling sandwiched between them;
  • sometimes the crushed cookies are used in cakes.

Substitutes

Chocolate wafers, gingersnaps, digestive biscuits, Graham crackers, lady fingers
