Sugar Free Grain Free Vanilla Wafers made low carb, grain free and gluten free! These are the perfect make ahead cookie that can be rolled into a cylinder form, wrapped and stored in the fridge or frozen for easy slice and bake cookies whenever you like.
Vanilla wafers were and will always be a classic, comforting cookie from my childhood.
Crumbles all over my pajamas and a glass a milk on a little folding table by the couch, sitting with my grandmother watching TV; a fond memory I will always cherish.
While the recipe for those classic cookies my grandmother and I used to enjoy may be quite different then the ones I’m sharing today, the classic taste is still prevalent and comforting all the way. The smell alone while baking will remind you of home, wherever that may be.
The best part about these cookies is how easy they are to prepare. Basically like a slice and bake cookie that makes life so easy. You can even freeze after you roll it and thaw for whenever you feel like baking some cookies.
Sometimes basic and plain is a good thing. Why mess with perfection? No need to add anything to these cookies really, they are perfect as is.
Maybe they don’t look exactly like thin vanilla wafers and may not be exactly as crisp as the ones you can buy, but for a grain free, gluten free, low carb, sugar free cookie, oh my these are spectactular!
With a slight bit of crumbly…….that’s how I like them.
Also perfect for banana cream pie parfaits, but that’s for another time.
Right now you can serve these up with any dip you like.
