Nearly 'Nilla Wafers

Inspired by Mama Pea over a Peas and Thank You I decided to make some Vanilla Waffers.  I used Mama Pea's recipe as a template and modified to accommodate my food intolerances and cooking supplies.  You can see the original recipe here.

We ate all but one cookie before I realized I should probably take some pictures so here is the one, lonely, remaining cookie.

It looks good, right?  Well, here's the recipe.

1/2c Non-hydrogenated shortening
1/2c granulated fructose
2T Soy Milk
1t Vanilla Extract
1 1/3c Whole Wheat Flour
1/2t salt
1t Baking Powder

1. Preheat oven to 350*

2. Cream shortening, fructose, soy milk, and vanilla extract on high for several minutes.

3. Mix remaining ingredients in a separate bowl.

4.  Gradually stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture.

5.  Make tablespoon sized balls and flatten them onto a cookie sheet with the heel of your hand.

6.  Bake at 350* for 9-11 minutes.

These cookies are so good!  I made the dough yesterday and cooked a few.  I put the rest in the fridge an cooked a few more tonight.  I'll probably bake more tomorrow. If you make them with white flour instead of whole wheat they really will taste like 'Nilla Wafers but I enjoy the richer flavor of the whole wheat and I try to avoid feeding white flour to my daughter.
