Milk wafers


by: Caroline B

These are the best cookies. l love them. The flavor is fantastic and, when they are warm, you can shape them any way you like. If you want to spoil your kids, make them into ice cream cones (you can make up lots of them and keep them in an airtight container). That is what we do on Sundays, when families come into the restaurant and we take the kids into the kitchen to choose their ice cream, which we scoop into the cones for them to hold in their hands. We also serve the wafers with coffee ice cream, as they really accentuate the flavor of the coffee.

1.  Mix the powdered milk, sugar and salt together, then whisk in the egg whites and melted butter, and put into the fridge for 12 hours. Preheat the oven to 340°F.

2.  Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. You can either spoon the mixture into small mounds and spread it, using a palette knife or rubber spatula, into whatever shape you like, or do as we do and make the biscuits into cones. From the center of a sheet of waxed paper we measure 5 1/2 inches vertically. From this point we measure 3 1/2 inches at a right angle, and make a mark. Then we go back to the original point, measure 1 1/2 inches horizontally, and make a second mark. Then we join the two marks together to make a geometric shape approximately 5 1/2x3 1/2x 6 x1 1/2 inches. We cut this out of the paper and discard it, lay the template firmly on top of a

3.  Lined baking sheet and spread some of the mixture over the top, then lift off the template. Repeat with the rest of the mixture — you will probably need to do this in a few batches, depending on how many baking sheets you have.

4.  Bake fer about 5 minutes, until the biscuits begin to color.

5.  When they come out of the even, while still warm, starting with the corner where the 5 1/2-inch side meets the 3 1/2-inch side roll into a cone shape. Gently lay the cones en a tray to cool.
