If your brown sugar has turned into a hard, compacted lump, add a slice of bread or an apple wedge to the bag or canister. Seal and let stand until softened, about 1 to 2 days. For quicker softening, microwave on HIGH at 30 second intervals, just until softened, taking care not to melt the sugar.
When a recipe calls for cutting butter into a dry mixture, make sure the butter is cold. Slice the butter into tablespoon-size portions, then add to the dry mixture. Use a pastry blender or 2 knives to cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients. When the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, it has reached the proper consistency.
