- Cut crosswise in 2-inch slices.

- Note: A good sub for the sugar is vanilla sugar. You can find it in most gourmet or European markets. Or, you can make your own. Place a couple of vanilla beans with your sugar in a tightly sealed canister. The strength will depend on how long you leave it as well as the amount of sugar. It has a very delicate flavor.
