This is taken off the back of a bottle of The New Orleans School of Cooking Pure Vanilla Extract. First of all - EVERYTHING that comes from the NOSC is wonderful! Their bottles of Pure Vanilla Extract come with a full vanilla bean in the bottle ... I always use the last bits when making homemade icecream and the bean is a special treat.
This recipe was part of a cooking class I took at NOSC while I was on vacation in New Orleans. So good! I didn't see anything here that was just like them, so I'm sharing this one here too!
