1 tbsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. shortening
1 c. boiling water
3/4 c. cold water
1 pkg. yeast
1/4 c. warm water
5-5 1/2 c. flour
1 egg white, beaten

Mix salt, sugar, shortening and boiling water together. To this mixture, add cold water and 1 package of yeast that has been dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water. Mix well, adding the flour slowly. Knead 5 minutes and put in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise 1 1/2 hours.

After rising, divide dough into 2 portions. Roll each portion into a jelly roll fashion. Pinch ends together and put seam side on a cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg white and make diagonal slashes across the top of each portion. Let rise for 1 hour. Put bread in preheated 425 degree oven for 15-30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes more. Let cool and slice bread through the slashes. Watch closely as bread is in the oven, it rises and browns fast. Has hard crust.
