Extracts are probably one of the greatest inventions, in my opinion. They are the perfect addition to a baked treat without messing with the texture or composition!
You can purchase so many different types of extracts at the store or online, the possibilities are endless.
If you enjoy baking, you probably go through quit a bit of vanilla. When I’m making cookies for people, I can go through a bottle in just a week or two! It can get pricey when you use that much. Pure vanilla extract can be $3 to $4 at the least. And that is just for a tiny 2 oz bottle!
I decided to start making my own so I can always have a jar on hand, plus the quality of homemade is even better!
