Can I sub dark brown sugar for regular brown in a PB cookie recipe? I tried a recipe once with the dk brown and liked the flavor alot. I'm still experimenting with recipes to get the right PB flavor so I thought about swapping out the two. Any opinions?? TIA!

Unless it specifically states to use light brown sugar, I always use the dark brown. I like the intensity of the flavor a lot better from the dk brown. JMO icon_biggrin.gif

In my opinion dark brown sugar is always better!

The big diffrence between DBS and LBS is the amount of molases in it. That is what makes the cookie chewy.

You can substitute the two without any problems.
