Entire Bean Vanilla Cookies

I pulled the sad remnant of a vanilla pod out of a bag of sugar the other day and it got me to use whole vanilla pods. The entire capsule. I’m sure this isn’t a unique concept, but for whatever reason, it’s something I’ve never considered before. I started thinking about it and came up with the idea of ​​mashing a whole pod in a food processor to use for something. Maybe add a little sugar to loosen up the vanilla pod a little. After a little experimentation, I landed on these little cookies. I love her!

These cookies are super easy to make – crunchy, small, and fragrant, with a sloppy vanilla kiss and a proper salt hook to balance it all out. Every tiny piece of vanilla pod that survived the processor is a bit like cutting vanilla-kissed raisin stains into the batter.

I made the cookies with a mixture of rye and all-purpose flour, but I’m guessing you could bake them with all-purpose or whole-wheat flour without any problems. And as for the vanilla pod, the key starts with a good pod that is pliable and comes from a reputable source. I tested these on Nielson Massey beans because I know many of you have access and they seem to be widely available.
