This recipe is from my Grandmother who grew up in a small town in Arkansas (Linder). It has been passed down for years.
My wife is from New York and puts Honey on hers before eating.
Being from the south there is nothing better than adding a pat of butter to the bread before eating.
This goes great with a fresh pot of homemade soup.
Finish it off with a glass of whole milk or buttermilk and crumble a piece of the bread in the glass for desert.
