For the past two weeks I have made cookies and breads like mad - for Mombasa fundraisers. Now today I baked a batch of brownies for tomorrow's homeschool group meeting. I thought I was done. Then, this afternoon, I received a call that I need to ALSO bring a treat for our neighbors who are moving away. ARGH!
I was on my feet almost all day but I got it done - plus pizza. I made peanut butter cookies for the neighbors' treat.
I have a kitchen tip for you. If you run out of brown sugar, use one cup of granulated sugar mixed with one tablespoon of molasses instead. That's all brown sugar is.
I tried to make my own powdered sugar one time, but didn't like the result. I used a cup of granulated sugar blended as much as I could get it in the blender to make it fine. Then I added a tablespoon of cornstarch. The result? Grainy stuff. I think it would have worked if I had a food processor and could get the sugar superfine.
