    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • Pinch salt
    • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut up
    • 2 tablespoons white vinegar plus enough milk to equal 1 cup
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 2/3 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    • 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
    Heat oven to 350 degrees . Coat 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
    In medium-size bowl, blend brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. With pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until crumbs form. Chill.
    Pour vinegar into a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup. Set aside. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
