Posting this in response to a request and also because it sounded delicious. I found it researching the net and the site just said it was imported from MasterCook. I haven't tried it yet, but when I get over my current sugar high from Easter, I will try it. Preparation time includes stirring while cooking.
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
