 *Baked roux:    Lots of Louisiana recipes start with “First you make a 
 roux. ”  The traditional roux is a mixture of about equal parts of oil 
 and flour browned to a certain point.    A baked roux can substitute 
 nicely in some recipes.  To bake a roux, preheat oven to 400 degrees.   
 Put some (about 1/3 c.) of flour pie pan or cake pan which has been 
 sprayed with PAM.    Bake at 400 degrees stirring frequently until roux 
 is caramel colored and just begins to have a burnt smell.   Don't bake 
 it any longer!    Store roux in refrigerator .  When recipe calls for 
 roux add an equal measure of water to whatever amount of flour is called 
 for in the recipe.
