The recipe of Delices and Gourmandises’ buttery wafers


Ingredients for about 5 dozens:

– 1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature

– 2 cups sugar

– 2 large eggs

– 2 cups all-purpose flour

– 1 tsp baking powder

– 1/2 tsp salt



– In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

– Beat in eggs one at a time.

– (If you want, you can add 2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/8 tsp almond extract)

– Gradually add flour combined with baking powder and salt and stir until well mixed.

– Shape soft dough into 1-inch balls.

– Refrigerate for about 60 minutes (the proportion of butter makes the dough very soft and a bit tricky to work with when it is at room temperature.)

– Once dough has chilled, it can be shaped into logs. Shape into 1 1/2 inch diameter logs, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until very firm.

– Preheat oven to 375°F.

– Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

– Flatten cookies to 1/4-inch thickness slices and place on prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between cookies to allow for spread.

– Bake for 8-11 minutes, until cookies are golden at the edges.

– Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
