I was reading a review on Epicurious that said to use Caramel extract instead of vanilla extract (referring to an English Toffee Cheesecake). I thought I'd try it in some of my cookie recipes (basic chocolate chip, oatmeal carmelitas, etc). Where do you find it??

Thanks for the link! I have seen it in other on-line shops. I was hoping to find it in a local specialty shop or at a grocery store -- but no luck. I just wonder if it has some artificial chemical-y taste that some extracts have (bleeck!). If I find some, I'll try it . . .

We use this product all the time in fudge, creams etc. I purchase mine from Gourmet Foods International here in Texas. It is a all natural product and is verry cheap. maybe $7 a liter. I'm not sure I would substitute it for vanilla though.
