1/2 c. lard or shortening

1/2 c. warmed milk

1/2 c. warmed water

Dissolve 1 t. sugar in a bowl with 1/3 c. warm water, sprinkle the yeast over and stir. Let stand to dissolve for 5 mins.

In another bowl mix the flour and salt and rub in the lard or shortening. Add the yeast mixture, then the milk and 1/2 c. water, and stir together, making a soft dough. It may be easier to mix with your hands.

Cover the dough and let it rise for about an hour, or until double in bulk.

Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead until smooth. Cut the dough into 16 pieces and form each piece into a small ball. Place the balls on a greased baking sheet, allow to rise for 30 mins.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 mins. or until golden brown.
