Vanilla Wafers
3 c all purpose flour or pastry flour
8 tbs butter or margarine, softened
1 c heavy whipping cream
3 tbs honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 300. In a large bowl or in the food processor, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal. In a separate bowl, mix the cream, honey, and vanilla extract. Add this liquid mixture slowly to the flour mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. You may have to add a little extra cream or some milk. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll to 1/8 inch thick. With a sharp knife, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares. Place them on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over once. Do not allow the crackers to become darker than light brown. Cool on a rack.
