I love scones!! I love just about everything that is bread!! What you’ll need is the roll recipe which I will include below also and your favorite toppings! And the best part…. You can freeze this dough and have scones whenever your heart desires! Which may be a bad thing ;)!
2 tbsp Yeast
2 cups warm Water
1/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Shortening
2 1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Non-Fat Dry Milk
5-6 cups Flour
Anything you want!!
In a small bowl combine warm water and yeast and let sit for about 5 minutes.
In a mixing bowl combine sugar, shortening, salt, milk, 2 cups of flour, egg, and water/yeast mixture.
Beat together until smooth.
Add 1/2 of flour at a time until well-mixed.
Knead dough until satiny.
Let rise for 1 hour or until about three times the size.
Pinch desired amount of dough and roll out into a circle shape.
The more the dough, the thicker and better the scone.
Fill pan so bottom is covered in oil and deep enough to just barely come to top of scone.
Fry scone until lightly brown on each side and let cool for minute.
Top with favorite toppings and enjoy!!
Have left over dough? That the remaining balls of dough and place on parchment paper on baking sheet a few inches apart and place in freezer for 30 min to an hour. Then bag!
