* I use a light Spanish Arbequina Unflavored oil, Apple Cider vinegar, and Mexican Melipone Vanilla — all from our Oil & Vinegar store. Feel free to substitute other high-quality oils and vinegars if you wish, but I strongly urge you to use the Melipone vanilla – it is absolutely fantastic and adds a really rich, authentic vanilla flavor to these cookies.
