Gourmet Sugar Cubes

Gourmet sugar cubes. More of a technique than a recipe, this was a fun exercise with super cute results. My sister, Mary, gifted me with some peppermint vanilla bean sugar from Savory Spice Shop, and I didn’t know what to do with it. Flashback to a failed attempt at lavendar sugar cubes a few years back (Valentine’s Day champagne cocktails gone wrong), I was ready to try again. Et voilĂ ! Perfect for coffee this morning. I didn’t want to buy specialty silicon molds, because that would require long drying times and limits how many you can make at a time. Instead, I used the Linzer mini heart cookie cutter, which I lined with parchment paper, in order to shape the cubes. Each cube is individually packed and released. Yes, this is tedious. Yes I did this a few dozen times. But the joy of dropping an adorable heart shaped sugar cube into my morning tea made it all worth the effort ^_^
