Banilla Wafers for Banana Pudding

I added banana to classic vanilla wafers. That way, the cookies themselves would have a slight banana flavor, kicking up the banana experience of the resulting banana pudding.

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt I found the wafers to be slightly too salty and will use table salt the next time I make this recipe.
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana about half of a banana
  • 1/2 cup vanilla sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the butter, banana, and vanilla sugar.
  • Mix in the egg.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract and milk.
  • Mix in the the flour mixture until just combined.
  • Chill the batter in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.
  • Scoop the batter in small balls and arrange them on parchment or Silpat-lined cookie sheets.
  • Use the heel of your hand to slightly flatten each ball.
  • Bake 2 pans at a time, rotating the pans halfway through baking, until golden brown (about 15 to 20 minutes).
  • Remove the pans to a cooling rack to cool completely before removing the cookies from the pan.
