Unsalted butter lets the cook control the saltiness of the food, since there is no industry standard for the amount of salt in butter -- it varies from brand to brand. As for the sugar, the unbleached cane sugar is closer to a natural state. Regular sugar won't replicate the exact flavor, but will be fine in the recipe.

You could put 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of brown sugar in the bottom of the 1/4th cup before adding granulated sugar to better mimic the flavor of the unwashed cane sugar.
