1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1 C sour cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add remaining crust ingredients and beat until well mixed.
Press HALF of crust mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13 x 9 pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown.
