"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Combine 1 1/3 c. of flour with the yeast. In a saucepan, heat milk, sugar, Crisco and salt until warm. Stir to melt shortening. Add dry ingredients. Add egg.

This is one of those "taste from home" recipes. My kids, my youth group and my neighbors love them. Enjoy
