Product Description

Size: 16 OZ

McCormick Pure Vanilla derives its rich subtle flavor from the finest quality imported Vanilla Beans. A teaspoon of Pure Vanilla is a wonderful way to enhance the flavor of many foods. Vanilla is so versatile; it is one of the world's most loved and tantalizing flavors.

From the Manufacturer

McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract

All vanilla is not created equal

McCormick Vanilla Extract is made of 100% premium, all natural ingredients to provide rich flavor – with no added corn syrup – to your next culinary adventure. Our Pure Vanilla Extract is gluten free and made from the finest quality vanilla beans. Part of the orchid family, vanilla is derived from dried, cured fruit pods that have little taste at harvest. But after a five-month fermentation and curing process, we are able to extract and deliver a delicious sweet, floral and spicy flavor that can transform ordinary foods into extraordinary meals.

Satisfies sweet and savory cravings

Many uses for vanilla lean toward the sweet side of things, but this rich and rummy extract offers savory applications too. Use it to enhance your favorite baked goods like cupcakes, cookies, cakes and pancake batter or add a few drops using our easy pour spout to infuse flavor into whipped cream, hot tea or coffee. Our Pure Vanilla Extract can also provide depth and rich flavor to more savory recipes. Add a teaspoon to sauces or glazes on meat and seafood. Or try it on vegetables, like green beans amandine to add pizzazz to everyday meals.

America’s favorite extract brand

For over 125 years, McCormick has been making flavors from 100% premium ingredients for your baking delight. Our high-quality ingredients deliver great tasting extracts from Pure Vanilla to Peppermint, Almond and Lemon. Our wide-range of extracts are perfect for all your baked good needs from cookies, cakes, pancake batter, cheesecakes, brownies, and pumpkin pies to sides dishes like sweet potato casserole. Whatever you feel like baking, a teaspoon of McCormick extract goes a long way.

Spiced Holiday Sugar Cookies Recipe

Makes 6 dozen or 24 (3 cookie) servings.

Sugar Cookies:

2 1/3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon McCormick Cinnamon, Ground

1/4 teaspoon McCormick Nutmeg, Ground

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 egg

2 teaspoons McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract

Colorful Cookie Icing:

1 cup confectioners' sugar

3 teaspoons milk

1/2 teaspoon McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract

3 drops McCormick Assorted Food Colors & Egg Dye

Directions:

1. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat granulated sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Refrigerate dough 2 hours or overnight until firm.

2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface* to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into shapes with favorite cookie cutters. Place on greased baking sheets.

3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

4. For the Icing, mix all ingredients except food colors. (Stir in additional milk as needed to thin icing or more confectioners' sugar to thicken, if needed.) Place small amount of icing into small shallow bowls, using one bowl for each color desired. Stir drops of food color into icing until desired shade is reached.

5. To ice cookies, hold cookie by its edge and dip top of cookie into icing. (Or spoon the icing onto cookie using a teaspoon.) Place iced cookies on wire rack set over foil-covered baking sheet to dry. (The foil-covered baking sheet will catch drips.) To add decorative details to cookies, spoon tinted icing into resealable plastic bag. Snip off a tiny piece of the corner. Squeeze icing through hole in plastic bag to decorate cookies. If desired, Colored Sugar may be sprinkled onto freshly iced cookies.

A a professional Chef I always want the best ingredients for the food I prepare. I used to use Nielsen Massey vanilla which is pricey for all of my dishes that call for vanilla extract, but after testing my baked goods with both brands I found no difference in the taste. I attribute this to the temperature that cookies, cakes, puddings and pies bake or cook at cause most of the flavors in pure vanilla extract to burn away. Even in custard based ice creams this happens. There are only a few dishes I use the Nielsen Massey now (I do use their vanilla bean paste frequently or a vanilla bean) but now for almost all of the dishes I bake or that are cooked I use McCormik's vanilla extract. The exception are butter cream frosting's, no cook ice creams, milk shakes, or any other thing that is not cooked and calls for a premium quality vanilla extract.

I got sick of buying Mexican vanilla that wasn't real vanilla, and the blue cattle co. vanilla that just tasted watered down, so you had to use double or triple quantities in everything to get the right taste. If you didn't know, Mexico does not have label standards, or an FDA, and people can sell that non-conforming vanilla online because online purchases are not regulated since they can be cross boarder. It is a classic case of federal government not being able to respond fast enough in a globalizing food market and technology. Coumarin is a toxic substance found in Mexican vanilla (even if it is labeled "organic") that can cause irreversible liver damage from studies I read.

I have decided that true madagascar burbon vanilla is the only way to go, and this McCormicks is the best price I've found on that variety of vanilla bean extract. I cannot tell the difference between other more expensive madagascar burbon brands such as spice islands, and safeways O-organics label. McCormicks has a reputation to maintain, they can't afford expensive lawsuits, and it is of course passed through standard American FDA standards, which basically protects the consumer from some of the stuff Mexico makes.

The following is an excerpt you can find by googling "Mexican vanilla danger"

2008 FRIDAY, Oct. 31 (HealthDay News) -- So-called Mexican "vanilla" is often made with a toxic substance called coumarin and shouldn't be bought by consumers, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned this week.

Coumarin is related to warfarin, which is found in some blood thinners. Eating foods with coumarin may be dangerous for people taking blood thinners, because the combination could increase their risk of bleeding.

McCormick spices aren't exactly world-renowned for bringing bold new taste sensations to the world. But Vanilla isn't a bold new taste sensation; it's a, well, plain-vanilla product that most bakers will use in quantity. A baker needs their extract to be consistent, flavorful, and (unless you are made of money) inexpensive. This is all three.

This is not artisinal product that will vary with every batch; this is the exact same vanilla extract bottle after bottle. You can rely on it to always taste the same and since it's the "default" brand of vanilla extract in the US, the person that wrote your recipe probably expected you to use it, or something like it.

I actually didn't buy this for baking. Try this. Heat your oven to about 325 degrees, put a few capfuls of this stuff in an oven-safe bowl and just throw it in the oven for an hour. Your house will smell like little angels have visited it. Hmm, I'm dispensing cleaning advice on Amazon now, when did I get so old? :-(

I use pure vanilla extract weekly in our homemade granola. The low quantity options in local grocery stores are extremely expensive. The McCormick label of this product assured me of its quality and the cost is about a quarter what it would have cost in local grocery.

This is a pretty good price for vanilla, especially compared to the little bottles you see in the supermarket. However, be aware that the vanilla grounds tend to settle on the bottom, so be sure the shake the bottle before using it.

And here's a little tip: instead of removing the safety seal, just poke a pinhole in it from the spout. Now you can easily squeeze out precise quantities of vanilla.

Update: I am changing my rating from 5 to 4 stars, not because there is anything wrong with this product, but because I have found something much better.

I bought this and two other bottles of vanilla at the same time: an organic Rodelle 4-oz bottle, and a Simply Organic 4-oz bottle. I'll give my thoughts on how they compare. All three are okay, and this one is the best deal as far as price per fluid ounce, but one stood out about the others and it was not this one.

McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract-16 OZ
McCormick is the brand you can buy at any grocery store, and it tastes the same here just in a bigger bottle (the bottle is plastic, FYI: both of the below organic ones come in glass.) If you just need a large amount of vanilla of reliable quality for a low price, this is a good deal. If you're making something fancy and special though, by all means spring for the next item below: the superior flavor is worth it.

Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract Certified Organic, 4-Ounce Glass Bottle
This organic vanilla is phenomenal. I would go out of my way to buy it again, because of how rich and creamy it tastes.
