    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??

    If you are in the U.S., Safari health carries it.

    You will find more places from www.google.com
    type caramel extract distributor in the search box.

    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.
