Smart Cookie Baking Tips
To keep your brown sugar moist and ready to use at all times, place a slice of apple or half a slice of bread into the sugar container.
If your brown sugar happens to be hard as a brick, it`s not too late, you can salvage it by placing it in the microwave for a few seconds. Once softened you can then add the apple or bread to maintain the moisture for future use.
