Wafer Thin Biscuits

    35 minutes

    These are incredibly easy thin biscuits. They spread out a little when cooking so make sure they're far enough apart on the baking trays.

    very tasty but lacks when to put the flour in. I put it in right before the egg.  -  11 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Amazingly good! I wasn't expecting much with so few ingredients, but I am pleasantly surprised. These are a definite answer to my after-school snack dilemma. Thanks!  -  26 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These cookies are budget-friendly and simple to make and are therefore perfect for last minute guests, because they are also surprisingly delicious. These cookies had the perfect amount of sweetness, especially when I sprinkled powdered sugar on them. They were not too puffy OR too crispy. Perhaps I made them too large, because I didn't get 40 cookies out of them. In fact, it was more like 10-12 cookies. However, I thought mine were a good size. Oh, and they make a very sticky dough, but don't worry about adding extra flour. They are good as is! I will definitely be baking these again.  -  06 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
