 Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
  1/2 cup milk scalded
  1/4 cup shortening 
 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 
 1     tablespoon sugar 
  1/2 cup water room temperature
 1     package yeast 
 3     cups flour sifted
 4     tablespoons white cornmeal 
 Combine milk, shortening, salt and sugar.  Cool to lukewarm by adding water.
  Dissolve yeast as directed on package.  Add to milk mixture and stir well.
  Add flour and mix until a soft dough is formed.  Roll out on floured board
 to 1/4 inch thickness.  Cut with a 3 1/2 inch round cutter.  Place on a
 baking sheet that has been sprinkled with 2 tablespoons cornmeal.  Sprinkle
 tops of muffins with additional 2 tablespoons cornmeal.  
 Let rise in a warm place (85-90 degrees) until double in bulk-about 1 hour.
  Bake sowly on a hot, ungreased griddle until brown, about 7 minutes on each
 side.  Split muffins, toast and serve with butter and marmalade. 
 I hope this helps.
