About Me

My photo
I would say that I am curious, vivacious, gregarious, sometimes funny, intelligent, easy going, very passionate about the things I love, caring, thoughtful, and kind. Maybe that is a little over the top, but I think you can count on me to be very honest. LOL

Grandma LeAnn’s Scone Recipe



1 teaspoon yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ cup water

½ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 egg

1/ 2 cup milk

1/3 cup oil

1 cup water

2 cups, or more, bread flour

Oil for deep frying


Warm mixing bowl with hot water, then combine yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, and ¼ cup water warmed to 110 degrees. Let the mixture sit until bubbly (about 10 minutes). Stir in ½ cup sugar, salt, egg, milk (warmed) and the additional cup of warm water. Slowly add in enough flour to make soft, not sticky dough. I like it to cling together and clean the sides of the bowl. Cover and let rise until double in size in a bowl that has been lightly oiled, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

In a large, deep pan or deep fryer, heat 1 to 2 inches of vegetable oil to 375 degrees. (the oil should be deep enough so the dough will float). Pull off a chunk of dough and stretch it into a flat disc about 8 inches in diameter and ¼-inch thick. Place dough in hot oil Deep fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and cook on second side until golden. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Keep warm until ready to serve. Repeat process with remaining dough.

Dough can be frozen or stored in sealed container in fridge for several days!
