Yesterday while teaching a baking lesson the unthinkable happened. I reached to get a box of brown sugar and discovered it was nearly empty. GASP. Oh no! We NEED 1 cup!
My almost 11-year-old friend, was instantly sad. We were in the process of gathering ingredients to make her Dad’s favorite molasses cookies. Big ol’ sad face with huge sad eyes. (Can you imagine, this face being sad? Oh dear.)
Why don’t we just make some?
Make brown sugar?
um, yeah, that’s what people do.
I don’t know how to make it.
I will teach you.
Write this down:
1 cup of white sugar + 1 Tablespoon molasses, mix = Brown Sugar.
Yes, that’s it.
Chop, chop, Lollipop!
Let’s get that cookie dough made so we can chill it and make cookies for your Dad!
