Learn how to make vanilla sugar to use in your German baking recipes and German cookie recipes. Here in Germany we are spoilt as we can purchase vanilla sugar in little packets. However, making your own vanilla sugar is very easy and inexpensive.
Vanilla sugar is when a vanilla bean has been added to white fine sugar. To make your own vanilla sugar, cut a bean in half and bury the halves in 1-2 cups of sugar. Store in a covered container and leave for a couple of weeks to let the vanilla flavour through.
