The Buttery Snickerdoodle Recipe from the back of the King Arthur Bread Flour bag had been calling my name for a while, so I finally tried it with one little change — using Totonac’s Mexican Vanilla, a new addition to my Mexican vanilla collection.
Totonac’s has a lot of positive reviews on Amazon so I ordered some in the mail. When it arrived I could barely get home from the mailbox fast enough to open it up and take a whiff. I wasn’t impressed with the aroma straight from the bottle because it smelled like plastic and alcohol, but when I poured it into a little cup and let it sit, the smell opened up and it was very nice. It was also very good in the Snickerdoodles, but the real test will be how well it works in vanilla icing and ice cream. I’ll keep you posted. I hope someone out there is finding these Mexican vanilla reviews useful. If you have one to recommend, let me know.
