DIY Vanilla Extract by Bake at 350

BonBon Break

Christmas is less than 3 months away. Honest. I counted it out on my fingers twice just to be sure.

I really like making homemade gifts for friends and neighbors at Christmastime…and I like to mix it up a bit and not give only decorated cookies.

Last year, I tried vanilla extract. The cool thing is….you can start NOW! Make up several jars and start checking off that Christmas list.
