"This is my dad's version of scones. It is a dough like cinnamon roll dough and it is fried in hot oil. Very good Sunday treat. Served with honey, jam or sprinkled with powdered sugar."

Maybe it's because I'm an inexperienced cook, maybe it's because I halved the recipe... I've been looking for a recipe for fried scones that I had in Salt Lake City, and I really hoped this would be it, but I was sorely disappointed. The scones I was looking for had a sweet, fluffy quality. These were heavier than I had hoped, and tasted yeasty (even after smothering them in melted honey-butter) more than anything... but, I probably didn't do something quite right. I'll keep searching, and maybe I'll give this recipe another shot somewhere down the line.

I made these tonight for dinner and they were EXCELLENT! However, I cooked them in a deep pan on the stove top. I heated crisco (half a big container) and added a little canola oil. My kids have never had them before, and they loved them. This recipe makes a ton of scones!! I was able to feed 2 teenage boys, dad, toddler and myself..there's enough left overs to fill our bellies again. I made them into the 2.5" circles. Yes, I will make again!!
