Remake packaged snack favorites. Great place to start is with Vanilla Wafers. My family taste tests everything I make, they are very truthful and I mean very truthful. This vanilla wafer cookie recipe passed with flying colors. My hubby said I didn’t make a big enough batch, that is how good these are.
Stop purchasing those store bought tiny vanilla wafers that can be hard and tasteless. Remember here is one more item you don’t have to add to your shopping cart.
