Imperial sugar/dixie crystals

2 recipes call for this stuff. all i could find was small canisters of decorative white sugar crystals for $5 a pop. I bought 3 but even that isn't enough for the 2 recipes. Can I sub regular sugar for this stuff in the cheesecake recipe at least? I can't find an answer on-line.

  • I thought both imperial sugar and Dixie crystals were just brands of regular sugar?

  • missanc, is right, they are just brands. Any pure cane sugar will do.

  • Imperial sugar is made in Sugarland Texas.

    I remember being heartbroken when I was maybe 4 .We live in a city near by and had Imperial sugar at our house.We were driving somewhere and stopped for gas at a station near the plant ...huge letters that matched the sugar at home.There was very white sand next to the station ...yup grabbed a handful to swallow ...bluk it was sand not sugar...LOL I really thought sugar was everywhere WAS called SUGARLAND and had a sugar factory !!!!!!
