Raw Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie

2. Turbinado or Raw Sugar: “Most Interesting Chew”

The Sub: Used cup for cup in place of both sugars in the classic recipe.

The Verdict: #2. The coarse crystals in the sugar held their shape, even after a trip to the oven. Some tasters loved the grittier texture of the cookies, but not everyone did. As far as flavor goes, these cookies were most similar to the white-sugar cookies but did have a faint hint of caramel. While not quite as soft and chewy as the original, you could easily make cookies using 100% turbinado sugar—just be prepared for the extra-grainy mouthfeel.
