Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting are usually a basic go-to dessert but this recipe, with a hefty 45 minute prep time is not your everyday cupcake. This recipe calls for steeped milk, vanilla beans, Madagascar vanilla bean sugar and vanilla bean extract, along with the whipped eggs, sifted flour, and 5 tablespoons of butter.

Patriotic goodies that are perfect for your next holiday barbecue.
