Kitchen Tip: Softening Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is an essential to making a perfect chocolate chip cookie, but what do you when it has hardened? I know there are a lot of tricks out there - these are the two I find most useful -

For immediate use - microwave the brown sugar for 10-30 seconds until it is softened.

For a whole container (takes overnight) - Place a slice of bread in with the brown sugar. Make sure it is in an airtight container.

  2. You can also wet a paper towel, squeeze out the excess water, and put it in the sealed container. The paper towel will dry out and the brown sugar will moisten.
