- 1/2 cup warm water (100 to 110 degrees)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
step 1: BRING 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; stir in oats and butter. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat; let cool to 110 degrees.
