Can I decrease the amount of sugar in a dessert recipe?

Decreasing sugar in baking

You can reduce the sugar in many desserts by using up to a third less sugar in the recipe. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, try using only 3/4 or 2/3 of a cup and see how it turns out. Remember that you may have to experiment with the amount to get good results.
