Pillsbury easy english muffins

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 packs Active dry yeast
2 cups Warm water
5 \N 6 cups all purpose or unbleached flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
3 teaspoons Salt
½ cup Shortening cornmeal margarine or butter

In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water (105-115F) Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add 3 cups flour, sugar, salt and shortening to yeast mixture, stirring by hand until moistened.

Stir vigorously by hand until smooth. Gradually add remaining 2-3 cups flour to form a stiff dough, beating well after each addition.

On floured surface, gently kead dough 5-6 times until no longer sticky. Roll dough to ¼ - ¾ inch thickness; cut with 3-4 inch floured round cutter. Sprinkle cornmeal evenly over 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Place cutout dough on cornmeal; sprinkle with additional cornmeal. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place until light, 30-45 minutes. Heat griddle to 350F. With wide spatula, invert dough rounds onto ungreased griddle. Bake 5-6 minutes on each side or until light golden brown; cool. Split, toast and butter. Makes 18-26 muffins.
