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.
