Preparation

Note from Ricardo

Well wrapped, this cookie dough will keep for at least 1 week in the refrigerator. You can then bake a few cookies at a time, as wanted.

Vanilla sugar can substitute regular sugar in the preparation of pastries. It can also sweeten custards, whipped cream, coffee or hot chocolate. Store-bought vanilla sugar is made of fine sugar with 10% of vanilla powder added. You can also make it yourself. It's simple. After using a vanilla bean, just rinse and pat it dry with paper towels. Bury the pod in a pot of white sugar and leave it there for some time to give the flavors a chance to permeate.
