I found this recipe over at The Pioneer Woman’s website and just had to give it a try. I do admit that it is a bit more labor intensive to get the cookies to curl properly and not cave in on themselves, but quite honestly well worth the effort. The secret is to let them cook way more than you think you should because they need to be crispy, crispy, crispy or else they will fall on themselves and look yucky (but still taste quite delicious, I must admit).

I followed Ree’s recipe except I did not use cinnamon and substituted vanilla extract instead — I am personally of the opinion that one cannot have too much vanilla extract in anything.
