Pure Vanilla Bean Puree (Paste)

Pure Vanilla Bean Puree an easy delicious way to get the authentic look of vanilla bean seeds! Delicate. Decadent. Delicious.

Ken Cook, longtime president of Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, searched for the highest quality vanilla and uncovered R.R. Lochhead’s 100-year family legacy in Paso Robles, California. Cook’s Vanilla represents our drive to produce the finest vanilla extracts. Only ten percent of the world’s vanilla beans are picked when perfectly mature. We harvest the fully vine-ripened beans and cure them ourselves to assure a delicate, intense, beautiful vanilla. Through our cold extraction, we have captured this exotic essence in a bottle.

We use more vanilla beans in our products than most vanillas you buy, providing added strength and richness. Additionally, we go directly to the source to find our vanilla beans. Therefore, we only use the absolute best vanilla for our extract. 

A easy and delicious vanilla perfect for the home cook, chef, or manufacturer. This product contains all of the flavor punch of Bourbon vanilla extract, with the authentic look of vanilla bean seeds, all suspended in a sugar syrup base. Like vanilla beans, this product shines where the vanilla bean seeds can be showcased. The vanilla seeds are perfectly suspended, so there’s no need to shake the bottle before use. Delivers the flavor punch of extract and the natural look of the vanilla bean. It is often difficult to get an intense vanilla flavor at home using only a vanilla bean. Pure Vanilla Puree gives you the best of both worlds. Perfect for vanilla ice cream, creme brulee, puddings, custards, sugar cookies, shortbreads, granola, and for vanilla bean glaze when mixed with simple syrup.

Cook’s Pure Vanilla Bean Puree (Paste) is made with the finest vanilla beans from Madagascar. Vanilla beans from Madagascar are of the Vanilla Planifolia variety. Often referred to as Bourbon vanilla beans, vanilla beans from this region are named after the French Bourbon Islands, one of which was Madagascar. This variety of vanilla is universally pleasing and enhances other flavors.

Flavor notes: Creamy, Rich, Sweet and Warm. Enhances other flavors.

    the best for my shortbread cookies. My mother’s fudge brownies are greater than ever and she is 95 years old and still baking…

  2. gopi (verified owner)

    i got this for making cakes but will return as It contains alcohol which is prohoited for religious reasons. The description did not mention alcohol, otherwise i would never have purchased this.

  3. Louisette (verified owner)

    Sorry I haven’t used it yet, but I am sure it’s great like all your products.

  4. Marilyn Goines (verified owner)

    Great and much less expensive than buying the vanilla beans and scraping them.

  5. Nancy (verified owner)

    The flavor in ths aste is AWESOME. I use it instead of vanilla extract in all my baking. So good.

  6. Nancy Lee Carpenter (verified owner)

    I use this paste all the time in my cooking as it has the BEST Vanilla Bean taste. I do not use vanilla extract at all since I have found this baking gem. If you bake a lot, this is a must have.

  7. Susan Bredehoft (verified owner)

    This vanilla bean paste is wonderful! I use it to flavor my plain Greek yogurt and this vanilla (with a little Xylitol for sweetener) makes the best tasting vanilla yogurt!

  8. Carole (verified owner)

    So yummy and you can see the little flecks of vanilla. I love it in buttercream frosting.

  9. Tammy Joyce (verified owner)

    This product is great!! Better than using the regular Pure Vanilla in my cooking.

  10. J. Anne (verified owner)

    The vanilla bean puree is an outstanding product and well worth the price. There is a richness and depth to the flavor I have not found in high quality liquid vanilla.

  11. Pamela (verified owner)

    The Vanilla paste is of good quality and the Cook’s company is great to deal with. Would recommend.

  12. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    I give out my recipes, but get complaints that “Mine didn’t taste as good as yours”. I am convinced that little touches like using Vanilla Paste from Cooks makes all the difference in the world.

  13. Martha Murray (verified owner)

    Thank you so much! I’m sure I’ll enjoying baking with this wonderful Vanilla Bean paste. Once again, Thank you very much. God Bless all.

  14. Bonnie Durk (verified owner)

    I do a lot of baking and this Vanilla Puree is the best stuff going. The vanilla taste it provides the better than anyother product I have ever used. I love it!

  15. amy (verified owner)

    This vanilla bean paste will the be ingredient that will make people wonder how come they followed the recipe you gave them and it still doesn’t taste as good as yours…

  17. Sharon Anne (verified owner)

    Normally… I am not a fan of food that’s labeled it’s made with vanilla bean. They often have a bitter edge, to them for me… but I love making recipes with your Pure Vanilla Bean Puree (Paste).

    The flavor is always spot on perfect, never bitter… and when added, it makes the best cream pies.

    Not to forget, now… since I have it on hand and it’s pre-made (with no mess)… it can’t get any easier to use!


  18. pat delamatre (verified owner)

    I purchased this for the first time at the cleveland,ohio food expo and i just love it i also purchased the powder vanilla and find a lot of uses for this even using it like powdered sugar to sprinkle on thing it’s great

  19. Leanne (verified owner)

    This vanilla paste is my secret weapon! It lends the very best flavor to everything you put vanilla into! The other nice thing is that it adds a touch of class with the vanilla bean flecks. I used to get this product elsewhere, but I buy it now from Cook’s. The price is very good, especially if you get a friend or two to buy also and then you don’t pay shipping. I HIGHLY recomment this vanilla. Can’t say enough good about it! I have also used the Cookie Vanilla, and their almond extract and they are very nice as well.
