Author Notes: This coffee creamer is delicious! It uses only 2 ingredients and provides the perfect base for any flavors you can dream up! Included is a recipe for Spiced Vanilla creamer. It's sweet, spicy, rich and addictive. [Note: to add flavoring to a Basic Creamer you made ahead, combine your base and flavorings in a small pot, bring to a light simmer, remove from heat, cover and let steep for 1 hour before straining. Then you can use or refrigerate your flavored creamer.]Tiffany

Maple Sugar tastes MUCH better and is MUCH healthier too! You can get it at most Whole Foods and the like....I recommend Butternut Mountain Farm's because of their quality standards and fantastic flavor!
