I was needing a pie crust the other day for something I was making and a regular butter crust didn't seem right. I don't buy regular graham crackers or vanilla wafers anymore and plus it's not worth a trip to town for just one box of cookies! Turns out it's really not all that hard to make your own! We used to like to buy a box of vanilla wafers once in a while too for a treat to munch on so now that I can make them myself we will get to treat ourselves more often!
What you need:
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 eggwhite
- 2 T vanilla
- 1 T. milk
- 1 1/3 c. flour
- 3/4 t. baking powder
With a mixer, whip the butter, salt, sugar, and eggwhite.
Add in the vanilla, milk, flour, baking powder, and mix well.
You can either use a small cookie scoop or stick the dough in a freezer bag.
Drop onto a cookie sheet in small amounts. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes. The cookies will harden more as they cool so don't worry about getting them hard in the oven.
These can be used just for munching or for crust!
