    for a different flavor profile, Mexican vanilla could provide a twist on one of your traditional cookie recipes. Mexican vanilla, while still sweet and creamy, also has a little spice to it, which could be a really interesting flavor in a butter cookie. Or, let it cozy up to other spices in ginger snaps or cinnamon cookie
