Your cookies may be a little bit softer, but it's perfectly fine to sub brown for white.

I haven ventured into cookie making yet, but brown sugar in cookies sure does sound good!!!!
MMmmmmmm!

I've had to sub with light brown sugar before...lol. It does make for a slightly softer cookie...the more brown sugar you use, the softer it will be, I believe. It also was a little bit darker cookie...not as creamy colored as a regular sugar cookie is. They tasted great, though! icon_rolleyes.gif

hmmm...I'm not really sure... icon_redface.gif It might be ok, if you let them bake a couple of minutes longer than usual, that usually makes for a slightly harder cookie....might work in this instance. This might be one of those things that you just have to try out to see what will happen. icon_rolleyes.gif I know when I had to sub the brown for the white sugar, the cookies were just a teensy bit softer, but they weren't on sticks - and just that little bit of 'extra' softeness might make a difference if they're on sticks. Wish I could be of more help....good luck with them! thumbs_up.gif

It will change the color and the texture of the cookies if you substiture brown sugar. Experiment and see how the turn out.

If it does not work, buy granulated sugar.
