Vintage Recipe

As it was written in 1926

Brandy Wafers

Vintage recipes are really good fun to try, some surprise you with their excellent results and others you have to modify to make them edible and retain good health.

I didn't quite understand why the following recipe was called Brandy Wafers as it contained no brandy. but I have tried them and was surprised how good they were. A bit like brandy snaps (without the brandy) and great with ice cream.

1/4lb sugar
1/4lb syrup
3oz flour
2oz butter

Put butter, sugar and syrup in a dish to warm in the oven.

Mix flour slowly into it.

Drop in small pieces onto a baking sheet and bake in a slow oven until firm.

Remove from tin with a knife and twist into any shape desired while hot.
