Thoroughly butter an 8 x 12 inch roasting pan and place it in the freezer
for 5 to 10 minutes. Combine the brown and granulated sugars and the water
in a heavy stainless steel saucepan over medium he at and, stirring

cookie sheet and toast in the oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Set
aside to cool.
