      1/2   c            Shortening
    4       ts           Salt
    2       ts           Sugar
    2       c            Boiling water
    2       pk           Active yeast
    5       c            Flour
      Put shortening, salt and sugar in large bowl. Pour
   boiling water over all and stir until shortening
   melts. Let cool to lukewarm. Sprinkle yeast over this;
   stir to dissolve; let stand until mixture begins to
   bubble. Add flour and beat.
      Roll out on floured board to about 3/8-inch
   thickness. Cut with round cutter, I use clean, empty
   tuna can. Sprinkle cookie sheets with cornmeal. Set
   muffins on these, fairly far apart. Let rise to double
   in bulk. Set griddle or electric frypan to 350~.
   Sprinkle with cornmeal. Put muffins, rounded side
   down, on griddle and bake 7 minutes. Turn and bake 7
   minutes on the other side. Split with fork, and toast
   or spread with butter and put under broiler until
   butter bubbles.
      These muffins freeze successfully. They should be
   split with fork before freezing. The recipe may be
   doubled when preparing muffins for the freezer. When I
   make these, I make 5 or 6 recipes!!!!
      They are even better than Wolfermans!!!  I could
   eat these till I pop!!!!  Yum!
