Versatile addition to your vanilla arsenal
Vanilla powder is a great addition to your spice rack. While it will never fully replace extract or paste, I have found its dry form very useful.
If building bake "kits" for gifts, it is an easy substitute. For my big jar of quick cook oatmeal, I will pre-add it and cinnamon (along with powdered, freeze-dried fruit for my own instant oatmeal pouch. I also bring a small tin of powdered vanilla "up north" to the cabin - it travels better than the liquid or paste.
