This recipe is a "tweaked" one from the *Ambrosia* Junior Auxiliary cookbook, put out by the JA in Vicksburg, Mississippi. You can order a copy at Amazon.com, and I suggest you do! The proceeds benefit their projects for children, and the food shots and historical narratives are great. I was one of the four writers who provided the historical passages, so I'm obviously biased!:):)This is a delicious pull-apart loaf filled with yummy things, perfect for a brunch or morning coffee. The original recipe had sausage in it, which I omitted. The ready-made bread dough makes this really easy, although I have made it "the hard way" using my favorite yeast-dough recipe, as well. Always a big hit!
