Scones are a small British quickbread that originated in Scotland. They are typically made from wheat, barley or oatmeal and come in many varieties including dropped, soda, potato, and griddle. In Scotland, the griddle or fried scones are called "girdle scones."


Griddle (Fried) Scones with honey butter

In many parts of the United States, scones are made from a sweet yeast dough and usually fried. They are often eaten with honey butter and/or powdered sugar. They are very easy to make and quite tasty.



Directions:

Dissolve 2 teaspoons yeast in 3/4 cups warm water. Add 2 cups Scone Mix and knead until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes, roll out and cut. (The dough setting on bread machines also works great!) Fry at 375 degrees F using double screens fully submerged (or cook on one side and turn to cook the other). Serve with powdered sugar and/or honey butter. For honey butter, whip 1 tablespoon of honey with 4 tablespoons of butter.



Place dough on floured surface



Roll out or push dough down to about 1/4 inch thickness



Cut dough into pieces about 3 x 3 inches



Slightly stretch pieces before frying



Enjoy!

Anonymous – We haven't tried using our scone mix for baked scones yet. We'll have to add that to our list of things to test!

We prefer the scones you can add fruit to and bake. Can this mix be adapted to that method?

I love honey, I need to try these soon. I wonder if you could easily fill them with some sort of sweet? It might help keep the mess the kids like to make down a bit.
