The role of vanilla in biscuits
Welcome aboard our flavorful adventure journey! Our next stop: The wondrous world of vanilla and its vital role in cookies. The right dash of vanilla can turn a neat cookie into a true patisserie masterpiece. But why is it like that?
Well, vanilla isn't just vanilla. She is the little black dress in the fashion world, the perfect smile in a selfie, the special note in a song - in short: the icing on the cake in the art of baking. More than just a flavor, vanilla is an emotion that unfolds in the warmth and sweetness of a biscuit.
But what is the best way to capture this aroma? This is where two stars come into play that are capable of giving your biscuits that special something: vanilla powder and vanilla extract. Both have their strengths and can be used depending on the recipe and personal taste.
Let's start with the vanilla powder . This fine powder is obtained from ground vanilla beans while retaining all the natural aromas and nuances of vanilla. It's the pure essence of the vanilla bean, brought into an easy-to-handle form. If you want to add a robust, earthy note of vanilla to your cookies, vanilla powder is a perfect choice. And let us let you in on a little secret: It also adds gorgeous little black dots to your batter, giving your cookies a rustic, homemade look.
On the other hand, we have the Super Premium Vanilla Extract . This liquid gold is the result of the maceration of vanilla beans in alcohol and water. It pulls out the full aroma and depth of vanilla and offers a strong, concentrated flavor blast. If you want a softer, more sophisticated vanilla note that blends harmoniously into your cookies, vanilla extract is your go-to companion.
Now that you know the secrets of vanilla, you're ready to bake your own vanilla cookies. But before you put on your apron and baking gloves, why not browse our vanilla collection a little? Here you will find the finest vanilla products that will give your biscuits that extra something. So go on a journey of discovery and be inspired by the world of vanilla. Happy baking!

Only uses the best, especially when it comes to the vanilla. Our Super Premium Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Powder are a surefire way to this heavenly experience.
The Right Temperature: Make sure your butter is soft but not melted. Butter that is too warm can result in your cookies coming out flat and crunchy instead of nice and soft.
Sugar Amount: Next time you measure the sugar in your recipe, try a little less than recommended. This allows the natural sweetness of vanilla to really come out.
Baking Time: Remember that cookies will continue to bake even after they are removed from the oven. So it's better to bake them a little if you're unsure.
Experiment: Dare to experiment! Add chocolate chips or press an almond into the center of the cookie before baking. Check out our entire line of products to see what other vanilla products you could use in your recipe!
