I love brown sugar,

I use it in lots of cookies and scones.

It keeps cookies moist, so if you have a favorite cookie recipe, that seems to get a little dry or to firm, change half or all the sugar for brown sugar.

You may just love it more than the original, I know I usually do.

Of course it’s really delicious on top of oatmeal too!

I use light browns sugar the most, but will tell you how to make dark brown sugar also.
