I Can Make English Muffins and I am Polish!!!

Well, I am half Scotch and Welsh too so I guess that helped.



These are really fun to make.


After you cut them out you let them rise on cookie sheets coated in cornmeal.


Proofing in the oven.

They bake on an electric griddle for 7 minutes on each side.


Better than Wolferman's....sorry Wolferman's!!!



Ready to freeze.

RECIPE:

1/2 c. shortening
4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
2 c. boiling water
2 packages instant dry yeast
5 c. flour

Put the sugar, salt and shortening in a large bowl. Pour the two cups of boiling water over all and stir until shortening melts. Let this cool to lukewarm. Stir in the yeast. Beat in the flour. Roll the dough on a lightly-floured surface to about half an inch thickness. Cut with a round cutter the size of a tuna can. Sprinkle cookie sheets with yellow cornmeal and place rounds on the sheets fairly far apart; these rise and you don't want them to touch. Let rise to double in bulk. Set griddle or electric fry pan to 350 degrees. Sprinkle cornmeal on the surface of the griddle, place muffins rounded side down and cook for seven minutes. Flip over and cook on other side for seven more minutes. Cool on racks and pack to freeze.

I doubled this recipe and got over three dozen.
