Vegan Cookie Recipes

Alternate sugar

I have just begun vegan baking and have a wonderful praline meringue recipe that uses brown sugar. How do you think the cooking time, or liquid should be altered to adjust for the moisture in the brown sugar?

Great question Grahma2! I assume you're interested in using brown sugar in these meringue cookies? If so, brown sugar contains molasses which holds onto moisture more, so you'd want to increase your baking times slightly. It's difficult to tell how much time would be required but I'm going to say it's probably in the range of about 15 minutes to 45 minutes more in this particular recipe. Good luck!
