Mix the Crisco oil, boiling water, salt, and sugar.
In a separate bowl, mix lukewarm water and yeast. Dissolve yeast and then pour into the oil mixture. Add 1 large egg and mix. Add 3 cups of all purpose flour and form into a ball. Lightly flour this ball and put it into a bowl. Let the flour-ball rise for 2 hours.
Shake the bowl so the ball drops down in size. Pinch off 3 pieces for each roll. Roll these into little balls. Place the 3 balls in a well-greased muffin pan. (Each cup has 3 balls of flour) Let rise 2 hours.
