    2 3/4                To 3 1/4 cups all-purpose
                         -flour
    1       pk           Instant dry yeast
    1       tb           Sugar
    1       t            Salt
    1 1/4   c             -- Warm water
    2       tb           Shortening
                         Cornmeal
 
   Oven is not needed.  Use pan or electric griddle
   heated to 325 F.
   
   In large mixer bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups flour, yeast,
   sugar and salt; mix well.  Add warm water (125 F. or
   so) and oil to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until
   moistened.  Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand,
   gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a
   firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and
   elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl,
   turning to grease top.  Cover and allow to rise in a
   warm place until double, about 45 minutes.  Punch down
   dough.
   
   On surface sprinkled with cornmeal, roll dough into
   1/4 thickness. With biscuit or cookie cutter, cut
   into 3 to 4 circles.  Place muffins on ungreased
   cookie sheets.  Cover and allow to rise at room
   temperature until double, about 30 minutes.
   
   Bake on lightly oiled electric griddle or fry pan at
   325 F. for about 8 minutes on each side, until deep
   golden brown.
   
   Yield: About 12 muffins.
