You can sub regular sugar in the portion you are cooking - just make sure it all dissolves. I wouldn't sub it for the powdered sugar in the crust.

I use superfine sugar out of habit when making caramel or candies...that is why I called for melts so much easier without having to worry about a grainy texture.
