An Even Better Coffee Creamer

If you tried out the Honey Vanilla Creamer and liked it, you're gonna love this one! 

While it doesn't use goat milk, it does use half-and-half.  I bought a 2 cup carton (the smallest my supermarket carries) for a recipe last week that only called for 1 cup. 

I can't stand to waste food.  So, I thought I'd find a way to use that other cup of half-and-half before it goes foul in my refrigerator. 

And . . . Voila!    Another homemade coffee creamer!

Homemade Vanilla Creamer

1/8 c. packed brown sugar
1/8 c. honey
1/2 Tbs. vanilla extract (the real stuff, if possible)
1 c. half and half

Combine brown sugar, vanilla, and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir occasionally until sugar is melted.  Don't let it get too hot or bubbly. 

Remove from burner and slowly whisk in the half-and-half. 

Store in a glass container in your fridge for a week or so.
