Yes it is, you do not have to buy really expensive vodka for good vanilla extract. Just buy good beans!

Did you remember to split the beans and shake it up every few days? And did you use enough beans?

Dry them off and put them in sugar for Vanilla Sugar. Let the sugar set for at least 2 weeks.

to apyorke, I have used Brandy, Bourbon, Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum and Meyers Rum, as well as Vodka. They have all worked extremely well. Get really good Vanilla Beans and be sure to split them before adding to the alcohol of your choice. My favorite, so far, is the Brandy, followed closely by both Rums.

Loved these cookies! It really helps if you will just WATCH the VIDEO! The cookies are flat cookies, they are not supposed to rise up. You should also use an oven thermometer to check the accuracy of your oven. Use kosher salt not table salt, otherwise you need to LOWER the amount of salt. Terrific cookies!"
