Vanilla sugar can be used in most any recipe you use white granulated sugar in to add a hint of vanilla.
3 high quality vanilla beans
1 cup white sugar
Split the vanilla beans and cut into one inch pieces. Combine in a food processor with one cup of sugar. Pulse until the vanilla beans are thoroughly mixed in.
Pour the mixture into an air tight jar. Allow to sit for two weeks.
Strain the sugar through a fine sieve to remove large fibrous pieces of vanilla bean. Return the vanilla sugar to the air tight jar. It is now ready to use for baking or teas.
