Baking with bourbon: Bourbon Vanilla Extract

bourbon-barrel-foods-VanillaIf you, like me, will be doing some holiday baking this weekend, consider adding an extra dimension of flavor to your cookies, breads and cakes with Bourbon-Madagascar Vanilla Extract from Bourbon Barrel Foods ($10/100ml, $35/16oz). Aged in used bourbon barrels, it boosts any recipe that calls for vanilla extract with the other subtle notes of bourbon. It also makes a nice hostess gift. You can find it at Work the Metal in the Butchertown Market in Louisville or online here.
