Vanilla Simple Syrup Recipe:
1 cup Water
1 cup Sugar
2 Vanilla Beans
In a sauce pan bring the water and sugar to a boil, stir until sugar is dissolved. Take the syrup off of the heat and add in the vanilla beans. Allow for the vanilla beans to steep for 5 hours, the longer it sits the more the syrup will absorb the vanilla flavor.
