  3. Hi Sailu
    Happy New Year! Can regular white sugar be used instead of brown sugar. What are the differences in taste or texture?
    Thanks

    1. Yes, you can use white sugar. Brown sugar has more moisture content than white sugar and yields a darker color batter and cookie.

  4. I made these today using GF self-raising flour and they spread a bit more than shown in the picture. But quite tasty and everyone at home loved these. Thanks for the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚
