Mmmmmm. Don’t these look good? Thank you, I made them myself.

I just got some good vanilla I couldn’t wait to try out.

It was great. I like the look of vanilla beans, but I wanted a stronger taste, so I got the extract too. The perfect balance.

For these you will need…

1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups coconut
Cream the butter and sugar.
Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and add to butter mixture alternatively with buttermilk.
Mix well after each addition.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
