This recipe was submitted by a cook I trust. She is an excellent cook and I plan to use this recipe as a base recipe. Right now I've got Sour Dough Starter and Sour Dough Bread hanging out.Since I won't add to my Sour Dough Starter for a couple of days, I think I'll use this for some awesome rolls. So many recipes can be made from this. It's a keeper....
