Recipe by Maryland Jim

This is from an old BHG Bread cookbook. I like making these in the fall. They just make me think of cooler weather.

Very tasty, but as a previous reviewer said, a bit on the dry side. Maybe a bit more shortening needed? I skipped the sugar topping and stirred in a handful of candied ginger chips, which worked well.
