Vanilla Bean Paste Really is Magical! 2 of 23
So, what is this vanilla bean paste that we speak of? It's sort of a hybrid between vanilla extract and vanilla beans. It has a viscous consistency and can be used in place of extract OR whole beans...hence the magic! It is cheaper than whole vanilla beans and easier to use, so you can get that lovely vanilla "speckliness" into just about anything you want.
- To substitute vanilla bean paste for vanilla extract, simply use the same amount called for in the recipe.
- To substitute vanilla bean paste for whole vanilla beans, use 1 tablespoon of paste per 1 whole vanilla bean called for in the recipe.
You can find vanilla bean paste on Amazon and in some stores like Williams-Sonoma.
