Combine the cormeal,sugar,salt,shortening and milk in a double boiler, cooking the mixture until it is thick, stirring it often. Cool it to a lukewarm,adding eggs, and the yeast dissolved in water. Beat the mixture well. Let it rise in a greased bowl for 2 hours, then add the flour to form a soft dough.
Knead it lightly, letting it rise in a greased bowl for 1 hour. knead the dough again before rolling it out and cutting it with a biscuit cutter. Brush the dough pieces with butter, crease them and fold them like parkerhouse rolls. Place them on an oiled sheet to rise for 1 hour, then bake them at 350 for 15 minutes. This recipe makes a very soft dough. Use flour generously when handling and shaping them.
These rolls take alittle time to make but are so good I hope you'll try them.
