Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is going to cause a fight. My sister, Lisa had asked me if I had it. Believing that I did not, I told her no. Well I guess I did for I found it while digging out recipes for this project. This recipe was first given to me by a woman I worked for as a babysitter. As the name implies, it's a great brown bag dessert for it has no icing but satisfies the sweet tooth none the less. My mother loved this recipe for it's great taste and simplicity. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family has. I'm sorry Lisa but I just couldn't exclude this one.
