Homemade scones

I have been on a bread making streak recently! We were watching the Food Network the other day. (Bad to do that at night!) And we decided to make scones. These are the yummiest scones

This recipe comes from my great grandma. My mom made ham, eggs and scones every New Years Eve and we watched Star Wars. It has now switched to Harry Potter. We eat late at night and it is even yummier then! Ok, now I am starving.

If you don't believe me, ask my husband who ate the majority of them in 3 days. He even took them for lunch. Yes, he is a bread junkie.

These are thick and luscious and absolutely delicious with honey butter or chili or anything honestly!

Scones (Makes 25 or so)

½ c. warm water

1 pkg. yeast

½ c. sugar

½ c. butter

2 eggs

1 t. salt

1 ¾ c. warm milk

5 ½ c. flour

Let yeast and water sit for 10 min. Add the rest of ingredients. Knead 10 min. Rise 1 hour. Roll out onto floured surface and cut into rectangles, about the size of a bar donut. Probably want 1/2 inch thickness. Heat oil hotter than the flames of h*^& or at least to 400 degrees. I use a frying pan that you plug into the wall. I am sure you could use a skillet, but just would take longer because it is smaller. Fry for about 45 seconds each side or until brown enough for you.

For rolls-400 for 14 min.
