Homemade Brown Sugar
Our lovely friend Benita pointed us in the direction of Aspiring Homemaker and her recipe for making your own brown sugar! How cool is that?? Ok, so maybe some of you out there knew about this, but to us it seems pretty much like magic. But as we've mentioned before, we are easily impressed! :)
To make homemade brown sugar, simply mix together 1 cup of regular, granulated sugar with 1 1/2 tablespoons of molasses. How simple is that??
To test it out, we made cookies using our brown sugar...and they turned out GREAT (although the picture doesn't do them justice - we were impatient and cut them while they were still too hot)! Even our little test subject said, "these are the bestest cookies EVER!" High praise indeed!
