How to Make Vanilla Sugar

Vanilla Sugar
Vanilla sugar is great to have on hand to give your baking recipes another layer of vanilla flavoring (if you’re already using vanilla extract), or to give a very subtle vanilla flavor. It’s extremely easy to “make” and it allows you to get your money’s worth out of a vanilla bean. Any time I use a vanilla bean for a recipe, after removing the seeds I just throw the pod into my container of vanilla sugar. The pods still contain a lot of vanilla scent, and that will perfume the sugar in the container. As you use vanilla sugar, simply add more sugar and give the closed container a good shake to distribute.

You can buy vanilla sugar, but I don’t really see the point when making your own is so easy and cost efficient.
