  • Preheat oven to 280 degrees. Bake for 2 hours, until golden. Remove from oven. Let cool.

  • In a saucepan combine sugar, water, vanilla sugar, cold water, and lemon slices. Bring to a simmer and stir until sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in additional 1/2 cup cold water to cool down syrup. Remove lemon slices.
