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

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

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