vanilla sugar

Eric bought me whole vanilla beans around Christmas and we made our own vanilla extract, which has been a big hit!  We have some leftover beans and we finally got around to making vanilla sugar this weekend!  I bake a lot and have wanted to make vanilla sugar for a while.  It is such and easy recipe and takes about 5 minutes to prepare.  You can use it just as you would use regular sugar, just adds a vanilla flavor!
Vanilla Sugar:
    2 Vanilla Beans
    1 Cup of Sugar
    Pour sugar into a bowl.
    Slice bean down the middle and scrape out the seeds.
    Add the seeds to the sugar and mix in.
    Place the empty vanilla beans into an air tight container (I used a mason jar).
    Pour the sugar into jar over the beans.
    Let sit for 1-2 weeks   

I'm excited swatch out regular sugar for this the next time I bake!

Have you made anything recently?
