I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Fried Bread Dough (scones)

This is something my mom & grandma would make whenever they made homemade bread. We grew up calling them 'scones'. My entire family love these. They go well with soup, chili, spaghetti, or for just a snack.


FRIED BREAD DOUGH (makes 15)

Ingredients:
*1 cup warm water
*2 tablespoons white sugar
*1 (.25 ounce) active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
*1/4 cup vegetable oil
*3 cups flour
*1 1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/8 teaspoon butter for each scone.
*salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
~Place the water, sugar and yeast in bread machine.
~Let the yeast dissolve and foam about 10 minutes.
~Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast.
~Select dough setting on bread machine.
~When done, remove bread dough.
~Knead bread.
~Divide dough into 1-2 inch balls.
~Freeze dough balls that you won't be using at this time.
~Flatten the dough balls that you will be using, to about a 1/4 inch.
~Butter both sides of dough.
~Salt & pepper to taste.
~Put a medium sized skillet over medium heat.
~Fry until golden brown, and flip.
~Fry second side until golden brown.
~Remove from heat, and serve hot.

Variations:
`sprinkle with garlic salt or powder.
`substitue butter with pam.
`sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
`Buy frozen bread rolls, let them thaw, and then cook as directed as above. Not as good as homemade, but will do in a pinch.
