these turned out great!! I used the proportions given, but added the milk and extract right after creaming the butter and suga together. I also added just a little lemon extrach to brighten the flavor a touch. I then put the finished dough immediately in a ziploc bag, cut a fairly large tip and piped the dough onto my cookie sheet. Got them in my tummy faster and definitely a keeper!

I made these because I didn't have enough store bought vanilla wafers for banana pudding. These are wonderful. I also piped the dough onto the cookie sheet. The cookies were crisper when I baked them at 375.

Delicious, crispy, buttery little cookies! I followed the recipe exactly. However, after chilling the dough for several hours, I found that it was far too sticky to roll out, even with parchment paper or a bit of extra flour. So, like previous posters, I whipped out my pastry bag and piped out the dough directly onto the cookie sheet. It took a bit more work that way, but the result was a few batches of delicious cookies which tasted exactly like vanilla wafers should. Perfect afternoon snack for my kids and their friends, who could not stop munching them.
