This recipe was handed down from a family friend Pansy Addington of Sheridan, Wyoming. She got the recipe from Max Sanders of Canadian, Texas in 1949 before she moved to Wyoming. We have used this recipe alot over the years and love it.It might not actually have a sourdough starter in it but it sure tastes like it.
