This is not my recipe, I read about it here (http://chefprivato.blogspot.com/2008/06/annie-golden-bread.html) and am reposting here to share. It's a great yummy party bread, and a fun story.
The story: "I choose Annie Golden for the day after the Tony's because she has something that many Tony winners would envy, a piece of the heart of everyone she knows. To have Annie Golden in your life is to have a source of love and laughter that never dims.
She is a nurturing family woman who has had a lot of rough paths in life but she paves each path with rose blossoms and carries burdens on her narrow shoulders as casually and without complaint as most of us carry a backpack.
I am lucky enough to know Annie Golden the performer, the consummate singer/songwriter whose show Velvet Prison still elicits rapture from those who have seen it.
Movies, television, Broadway and now...a bread?
This bread has been fed to Annie many times and never had a name, people call it the bread, the wonderful bread and always ask before every party...are you going to make that bread?
The bread like Annie is quite adaptable, different cheese, different formulations of the the dip, even different bread recipes all work.
Play with the recipe, change it. Think of it as a live performance, it never has to be exactly the same, it just has to be good."
Prep time does not include time for rising/resting dough.
