Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean Paste

In baking, you’ll find that vanilla extract is called for in most recipes. Even basics like homemade whipped cream and simple shortbread benefit from a touch of vanilla flavor.

Because vanilla is so prevalent in baking, it’s important to add a good vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste to your list of gourmet baking ingredients. Our Test Kitchen loves Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean Paste. Thicker than extract, you’ll find that paste packs big flavor and gives you those flecks of vanilla bean we all love to see in homemade bakes.
