Based on the reviews I saw, these cookies seemed easy and delicious. I tried to make them recently and they turned out to be a hot mess. The cookies tasted nothing like a vanilla wafer, the edges were dark and flaky, and it was just too sweet. And, whilst the edges were over baked, the middle was gooey. Save yourself some ingredients and don't try this recipe.

Simple, quick recipe. A little too sweet for my taste, so I'll use 3/4 cup sugar next time as suggested by others. I also had to keep an eye on the cookies as they baked--mine needed 9-10 minutes, not the 12-15 indicated in the recipe. I'll definitely be making these again and look forward to adding them to homemade banana pudding!

I just made a batch of these and they are amazing. A delicious buttery vanilla flavour with a wonderful texture. And the bonus is that they were super quick and easy to make. Definitely a keeper.

The whole thing just melted into one big dark flake, crispy at the sides. The second time I added more flour but it turned out even worse.
