Another Cookie Post

So, I made it another cookie making evening.

I keep meaning to mention, too, in the vein of making your own vanilla extract, it’s also quite simple to make vanilla sugar.

Want the recipe?

Take some sugar and put it in a jar with a tight fitting lid.  However much you want, probably between a cup and three. Take a vanilla bean or two, slice it lengthwise in half, and drop it in.  If your jar is too small, cut them in pieces.  Close the jar.

You have now made the sugar.  You can let it sit however long you want, but probably at least a week.  It’s lovely on cereal or fruit or in tea or coffee.  When you’ve used half of it or so, add more sugar.  Every six months or so, add another bean.

How complicated is that?

So, anyway, I made three kinds of cookies tonight...
