In a large bowl add brown sugar. Using a fork, whisk brown sugar around to break down any lumps. Next add a heaping serving tablespoon of self-rising flour and stir until the flour disappears into the brown sugar.
Remove and cool for about four hours. Pies can be stored on the counter or in the refrigerator.
