Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Tips
Vanilla bean paste is made from ground vanilla beans mixed with vanilla extract. Adding it to these cookies boosts the vanilla flavor, but if you can’t find it, they’ll still taste great.
Ghee (clarified butter) is a butter substitute that does not contain the protein casein found in butter. It can be substituted one-for-one with oil, but not with butter. Butter contains water, which will throw off the ratios if used instead of oil or melted ghee. Ghee is found in the dairy section or baking aisle.
