Homemade Vanilla Wafers

As said before, I would rather make something homemade than buy it. Have you ever looked at the ingredients or sodium in boxed, canned or bottled things? I was looking for some snacks for Madison and came across Weelicious. This site has a ton of great toddler friendly foods and snacks and also some regular recipes as well! I made these earlier in the week and Madison seems to love them! They are actually pretty good, even though they taste more like sugar cookies than the store bought boxed vanilla wafers. Sorry these are phone pictures so they aren't great. Full recipe at the bottom.

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place the first 3 ingredients into a bowl and combine. Place the butter and sugar in a standing mixer (or bowl using a hand mixer) and cream for 3-4 minutes until the butter is light and fluffy.  Add the vanilla extract and egg and mix for another minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go. Add the flour mixture and mix until combined. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.


Roll 1 tspn of dough into a ball, about 1 inch, and place on a parchment or aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
Flatten each ball into a disk then bake for 15 minutes.

Cool and serve. Mine aren't nearly as pretty as theirs.
