Have you ever flavored sugar? It’s so easy, and you can use extracts you already have!
Sometimes when I share “how to” posts I wonder if my readers think “Jeez, everyone knows that!” Turns out when I do these posts, a lot of times, people say “I never thought of that!” I mean, at some point I felt that same way myself. I was recently making some Pie Crust Cookies, and didn’t want to dust them with cinnamon and sugar. I was using some of them to top a berry dessert, and the spice really didn’t go with it. I mean if I were pairing it with apples, or pears or peaches, I would have went for it, but this needed something different. So, I started experimenting.
By the time I was done, I had Lemon Sugar, Vanilla Sugar and Almond Sugar. (imagine yummy sugar cookie taste!)
I made up a big batch of Pie Crust Cookies and dusted them with the different sugars.
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 teaspoon of extract, your flavor choice
In a small bowl mix with a fork, allow to dry and mix again.
Add to baking, or use to decorate.
Keep in an air tight container.
