Never Toss a Bag of Hard Brown Sugar Again!

December 8, 2015 | By | Comments (3)

Each week this holiday season, we’re partnering with our Time Inc. sister brands Food and Wine, Health, MyRecipes, Real Simple, Southern Living, and Sunset to bring you everything you need for the holidays this year.


We’ve all been there. You’re prepping your ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, a quick bread, even a batch of sticky buns. You go to your cabinet and pull out your bag of brown sugar only to realize it’s so hard you’d need a jackhammer to make it of any use in your baking.

Test Kitchen expert Deb Wise can provide you a quick how-to to make your brown sugar entirely useable again.


Have a lot of brown sugar on your hands? These Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies are a great way to use up any stores. They’re extra caramel-y and delicious because of the all-brown sugar sweetening.
