Baker’s Best Kept Secret: Nielsen-Massey Vanilla

Last week I got a bag of pears from Union Square farmer’s market and I was wondering what I should do with them!  Some of them were so small that I juiced them with ginger and apples and made really tasty drink.  Then I found the Golden Almond Pear cake and just had to bake a mini one.

My secret ingredient was the amazing Nielsen-Massey Vanilla extract.
