1 Place the rack to the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2 Generously butter six 6-ounce timbales, ramekins, or custard cups. Place a folded kitchen towel inside a roasting pan large enough to hold the ramekins. Place the pan in the oven. Pour hot water into the pan to a depth of 1/2 inch.
3 Place the amaretti cookies in a large heavy plastic bag. Seal the bag and lightly crush the cookies with a rolling pin or other heavy object. You should have about 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons of crumbs. Repeat with the vanilla wafers in another bag. There should be 1/2 cup of these crumbs.
4 In a large bowl, stir together the egg yolks and cream. Add the crumbs and stir until moistened.
5 In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on medium speed with a pinch of salt until foamy, about 1 minute. Increase the speed to high and continue beating until the whites are glossy and form soft peaks when the beaters are lifted. With a rubber spatula, gently fold a spoonful of the whites into the crumb mixture to lighten it. Fold in the remaining whites.
6 Scrape the batter into the prepared cups. Carefully place the cups on the folded towel in the pan in the oven, leaving an inch or two of space between them.
7 Bake 50 minutes or until the cakes are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8 Remove the cups from the pan and cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Run a thin metal spatula around the cakes and unmold them onto serving plates. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Serve warm.
