When I made this peanut butter cookie the other night, I realized I was out of brown sugar but that was totally okay.
I made my own brown sugar and it’s so easy to do.
All you need to make brown sugar is granulated sugar and molasses.
To make brown sugar for this peanut butter cookie recipe:
Mix together two tablespoons of granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of molasses with a fork and voila, brown sugar.
If you need to make a larger batch of brown sugar, mix together 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of molasses. No quick run to the grocery is needed.
For this peanut butter cookie I use a ramekin that holds about 8-ounces.
