Homemade Vanilla Sugar

I sprinkle vanilla sugar over just about any dessert I can, including pie crusts, cobblers, sugar cookies, in beverages, and on sweet rolls. Here's an easy recipe for vanilla sugar.

Use regular granulated sugar or a more decorative larger grain sugar.


  • 1 vanilla bean, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cups granulated sugar


Add 1 vanilla bean pieces to the sugar. Cover and let sit for 2 weeks before using or giving as a gift. Do not remove the vanilla bean pieces. Store in an airtight container.

Use for baking, cookie decorating, beverages, etc..
