Korry's family use to have fried scones every Sunday. We don't have them quite so often, but when we do, this is my favorite recipe.
***This recipe is easiest to prepare if you use a stand mixer that can knead for you :0) However, we do it by hand when we are camping and it works just fine. This makes A LOT, so if your mixer is small, you may want to half the recipe.
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine:
2 c. warm water
2 T. active dry yeast
½ c. sugar
2. Let that mixture stand 10 minutes until yeast begins to grow. Then add:
½ c. instant dry milk
3 cups flour
3. Beat until smooth, then let the mixture rest for 20 minutes. Next add:
½ c. vegetable or canola oil
4 tsp. salt
Enough flour to make a soft dough
(I usually add one cup of flour at a time, mixing well between until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and I can touch or press the dough without it sticking to my finger).
4. Knead dough in stand mixer for 5 more minutes.
Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with a dishcloth and let rise for 1 hour.
FOR SCONES: Shape dough into scones and place on plastic wrap or waxed paper that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Let rise 20-30 minutes. Fry in hot oil
FOR DINNER ROLLS: Roll into desired shapes, place on greased pan. Let rise for about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
HONEY BUTTTER: Beat together 2 squares real butter (softened), 1/8 cup honey and ¼ tsp. vanilla. Can also add ¼ tsp. cinnamon if desired. Serve on warm scones
