benne wafers

A trip to Charleston, SC last fall peaked my interest in benne wafers.  I first attempted to replicate the  famous cookies a few months ago; here’s the link.

For this attempt, I followed a recipe from “Lost Recipes,” a magazine publication by Cook’s Country – page 46.

These cookies were thin, although, not as thin as those pictured with the recipe.  Regardless of thickness, the cookies were delicious!  And, the baked cookies freeze very well.
