Some of you may remember that I won some vanilla beans. I tried so many different recipes using them it was amazing! And so delicious! I was astonished by the difference in taste using vanilla beans vs. vanilla extract (which I made from some of these beans also). My favorite recipe was for vanilla sugar. It is awesome sprinkled on French toast, pancakes, oatmeal and ice cream. I'm sure there are lots of other things it is good on. Just use your imagination!
What you'll need:
- 1 vanilla bean
- 4 Tbl powdered sugar
Roughly chop the vanilla bean and add it to a food processor or grinder with the sugar. Grind together until vanilla bean is "powdery". Let sit overnight. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 1/4 cup of vanilla sugar.
