When I asked Scott what kind of Valentine he wanted for his class party this year, he said he wanted to make a Valentine. I was so happy about that, because I’m all about homemade when I can.

Homemade vanilla extract makes a beautiful gift come Christmastime. It’s something most people don’t think to make or know how to make, and the pure, real stuff is expensive. Put it in a neat little jar and you have an easy, loved, homemade gift.

These treats were made for Kaylee’s 4th grade teachers and school administrators — so, 3 years ago.
