In just a few short month’s fall will be here and it’s time to get ready for fall baking. I’ve always been a fan of Vanilla Sugar but always hated paying for it. Recently I watched “Kelsey’s Essentials” on The Cooking Channel. She was getting ready for holiday baking and making some holiday treats that she used homemade vanilla extract and vanilla sugar in her recipes. So I started researching and found with just a little prep work I could make my own in about 2 month’s. That would put me at about the middle of October which is perfect, so I set off for Penzey’s to get some vanilla beans. The only other ingredients I needed was some sugar and some Vodka. So simple!
