  2. Kitchen Basics
    I am making cookies for Gavins birthday....he requested that instead of a cake or cupcakes. I just opened 2 packages of brown sugar and they are both solid as a rock. They were stored unopened in the kitchen cabinet. Not sure what the issue is. Is there anyway to soften them or salvage them?
