Vanilla Salt. It's a thing! You may already know about Vanilla Salt, but I did not until a few days ago, so please do not burst my bubble of excitement. What a perfect topping for cookies and bars (like these, in fact). And it would also make a great homemade gift this holiday season.
I followed this tutorial, however, I did not use Grey Celtic Sea Salt. I do not have that in my pantry, and I didn't feel like braving our horrendous Whole Foods parking lot just to get it. So I used regular old coarse sea salt and it turned out just fine. Easy peasy!
