Have you ever been in the middle of making cookies only to discover you're out of brown sugar? If you're like me, you would panic and run to the store or borrow some from your neighbor. Fret no more. It's SO easy to make your own (as long as you have molasses on hand). This takes a little elbow grease, but turns out beautifully. It works and tastes just like regular brown sugar, but even fresher! Increase the molasses for a darker flavor, or decrease the molasses for a lighter flavor.
1 C. granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. molasses
Mix in a bowl with a fork or beater until all the molasses is worked into the sugar. Store in an airtight container.
