Western Scones

Western Warmth Scones Recipe

1 1/2 C warm water
2 T yeast
1/2 C milk
1/3 C sugar
2 t Salt
3 T Butter
5 1/2 (ish) C flour (whole wheat works too!)
oil for frying

Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Put milk in a glass bowl, along with sugar, salt and butter.  Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.  Add flour and milk mixture to water and yeast in mixer bowl.  Mix for several minutes so it all gets kneaded, as well.  Then, grease the dough and the bowl under it and allow to rise in a sink of hot water...I just put the mixer bowl into the sink and cover it with a towel.  This makes it rise quickly.  Heat the oil to about 375 degrees for frying.  Punch down risen dough and break off roll size bits, stretch them out with your hands and drop in the hot oil to fry.

These are great served as dessert with honey to dip them in, or topped with taco toppings for Navajo Tacos.
