cornbread and buttermilk biscuits had a baby

and they named it: oklahoma cornmeal rolls

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour (i ended up having to add about 1/2 c. more)
3/4 c. cornmeal
1 T. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1 t. sugar
1 t. salt
2 T. shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 c. buttermilk

sift together dry ingredients. cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. add egg and buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 3 or 4 times. roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness; cut into 2 1/2 inch circles. make a crease across each circle, and fold one half over. gently press edges to seal. place on a greased baking sheet. bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
