LUNCHEON OR SANDWICH ROLLS
4 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 6 teaspoons Dr. Price’s Baking Powder 1 tablespoon shortening 1-1/2 cups milk
Sift together flour, salt and baking powder; rub in shortening; add milk, and mix with spoon to smooth dough easy to handle on floured board. Turn out dough; knead quickly a few times to impart smoothness; divide into small pieces: form each by hand into short, rather thick tapering rolls; place on greased pans and allow to stand in warm place 15 to 20 minutes; brush with milk. Bake in very hot oven. When almost baked brush again with melted butter. Bake 10 minutes longer and serve hot. If a glazed finish is desired, before taking from oven brush over with yolk of egg which has been mixed, with a little cold water.
These rolls make excellent sandwiches, using for fillings either lettuce and mayonnaise, sliced or chopped ham, chopped seasoned cucumbers, egg and mayonnaise with a very little chopped onion and parsley, or other filling desired.
4 cups rye flour 1 teaspoon salt 6 teaspoons Dr. Price’s Baking Powder 1-1/2 cups milk 1 tablespoon shortening

4 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar 7 teaspoons Dr. Price’s Baking Powder 2 medium sized cold boiled potatoes Water or milk or equal quantities of each

This will require about one and one-half cups.

Bake in hot oven and when nearly done, brush again with melted shortening.
