Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375° or as directed on packaging.

Tip

  • Prevent brown sugar from hardening by storing it with a terracotta disc that has been soaked in water for 15 minutes and dried off.  If hardened, place a damp paper towel or apple slice in airtight container for several hours to make soft again.
