This Trader Joe’s vanilla extract with pure bourbon is an amazingly rich and flavorful way to make your pastries taste just a little better than they otherwise would. This adds even more vanilla flavor than regular Trader Joe’s vanilla extract, while also giving cookies or cupcakes an added hint of something extra. This is pretty pricey at almost $5 for just 4 ounces, but as far as specialty vanilla extract goes, this is actually a pretty good value. It reminds me of the Trader Joe’s vanilla bean paste that TJ’s used to carry and just recently brought back. If you are looking for something to add some flavorful kick to your same old cookies, I would give this bourbon vanilla extract a shot…..…….

Trader Joe’s Bourbon Vanilla Extract
I kind of wish I had discovered this version of TJs vanilla extract a long time ago. I’ve found that I prefer the taste of my go to chocolate chip cookies with this bourbon vanilla extract over the regular vanilla extract. I could be just imagining things, but I do feel like it adds another flavor dimension to my cookies that people really love. What is everyone’s favorite pastry or baked goods recipe to use this in? Has anyone else cooked with both types of vanilla extract and have found that one makes cookies taste a lot better than the other?! Either way, this has an awesome bourbon and vanilla taste to it, and you really can’t go wrong when you’re making cookies anyways. I’d just say mix this in once in awhile if you get sick of the same old cookies! Check out these other options if you can’t make it to TJs in person…..
