      1/2   c            Oatmeal (rolled oats)
      1/2   c            Whole wheat flour
      1/8   t            Salt
      1/4   c            Shortening
    2       T            Molasses
    2       T            Honey
    1       c            Water, boiling
      1/2   c            Water, warm
      1/2   oz           Yeast (dry), active
                         -(2 packages -- do not
                         -use quick-rising yeast)
    1       t            Honey
    1                    Egg
    2 1/2   c            Flour, unbleached
                         -(up to 3 1/2 C)
 
   Combine oatmeal, whole-wheat flour, salt, shortening, molasses and honey.
   Pour boiling water over all.  Mix and let cool.
   
   While cooling, dissolve yeast in warm water with the honey.  Add egg to
   cooled batter, then mix in dissolved yeast.
   
   Add flour until dough is just soft enough to knead.  Knead lightly.  Place
   dough in a greased bowl; cover with a damp cloth.  Let rise in warm place
   until  doubled in bulk; about one hour.
   
   Punch down dough and cut into 12 equal pieces.  Shape each piece into a
   ball in put into a greased 9-inch pan. Let rise again for 45 minutes.
   
   Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. for 40 minutes.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Holiday rolls with oatmeal and molasses -- This recipe has long been
   part of my Thanksgiving tradition. I have long since forgotten its source.
   
   *  These rolls are really wonderful, but they need time to rise.  start
   them as early in the day as possible. Don't even think about using the
   quick-rise yeasts.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy to moderate.
   : Time:  several hours preparation, 1 hour baking and cooling.
   : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
