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.

Yum, really enjoyed these! Love the simple ingredients and flavor, so good! Sometimes less is more. Hubby loved them too and he's a real chocolate kind of guy. Thanks for sharing!

I had no problem with them flattening out. They did not taste like vanilla wafers, but they were still good. I would put a little more vanilla in next time.

They didn't really taste like nilla wafers to me, but still hit the spot & were delicious!

A flat disappointment. They ran together and were gooey in the center and crisp on the edges. Also, too sweet for my taste. But my husband liked them.

Very easy to make, butter and vanilla stand out since there are so few ingredients

Very good cookie. I flattened it out and upon removal from the oven added a Andes mint. When the Andes started to melt, I added a whole pecan. Scrumptious!

Silvercandle2: add colored sugar/sprinkles before baking. You will have to flatten out the cookie a little so you have more decoration coverage. Watch your baking time if you flatten the cookies prior to baking. If you are going to use icing type of decoration, do that after baking and cookies are throughly cooled. If you DO decide that you would rather use the sugar sprinkles after baking, you will have to use a medium so that the sugar will 'stick'. I would recommend clear corn syrup brushed lightly on cookie, then add sugar.

This might be a stupid question but when do you sprinkle the colored sugar on and will it stick to the cookie?
