Did You Know You Can Make Your Own Brown Sugar?

Did you know you can make your own brown sugar? Since I have been working full time, I don't do as much baking as I used to. So tonight when I wanted to make cookies, I found I was out of brown sugar. Thinking there is no real substitute I Googled it anyway. And I was happily surprised to find that brown sugar is nothing but white sugar and molasses. I was even more happy that I had some molasses on hand!(It's been a long time, but I do like to make gingerbread.) So I poured a cup of white sugar into a bowl with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of molasses and stirred together with a fork. This make a nice, soft brown sugar that worked perfectly in my cookies!

Well, I'm not a cook, but I found this interesting! I suppose because I like both brown sugar and molasses.
