Simple Scones: Fun Sunday Evening Meal

Our family enjoyed these simple scones and milk for dinner tonight. We usually eat a larger meal in the afternoon, and a lighter one in the evening. I was given the 1997 Farmington Neighborhood cookbook from Anne Wiese, and found the quick scone recipe listed below. Don't you love those ward cookbooks? All food storage ingredients. I doubled my batch for the 6 of us and fried them in about 2 c. of oil (a good way to use up some of your oil supply before it goes bad). Yummy with powdered sugar, honey or pancake syrup. Hope you like them too.

1 T yeast
1 c. water
1 T sugar
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder

Combine yeast and water. Let sit. Add remaining ingredients. Deep-fry until golden.

    Mmmmm, those look sooo good.

    Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe!

  2. I'm glad to see that someone other than myself makes scones the Swedish way-fried! I am always so disappointed when someone says they made scones and they are the English version which is like a biscuit. YUM!!


Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
