Cameron - You are so right! We appreciate your comments. Unfortunately the vanilla was inadvertantly left out of the recipe when it was added to the web site. I have added the vanilla to the recipe now. Thanks for letting us know!

We loved making these cookies and everyone enjoyed them. The cinnamon is a nice touch. The only problem is the recipe says to add vanilla but does not give an amount. I added 1 tsp. and they turned out great! This is definitely a recipe I will be keeping.
