Homemade Scones with Honey Butter
1 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup warm water
4 cups flour, plus a little extra to lay out
Combine yeast and 1/4 cup of warm water to together and let sit for 5 minutes. Next add the butter, salt, sugar, 1 cup water, egg and mix together with your mixer. Slowly add in the flour until will incorporated.
When all mixed if your ready to eat soon, lightly flour your table top and roll out your dough. With a pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares.(I kept mine about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and made about 5 inch squares). I covered mine with Saran Wrap and let rest for about 45 minutes so the dough can rise. If you make it ahead of time cover the dough and place in the fridge, until ready to use.
I used a deep fryer to cook my scones, just watch until they are lightly brown flipping occasionally. If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a frying pan with a enough oil to cook scones.
This recipe makes quite a bit, it all depends on how think you make you them. But if your a small family I would either half the recipe or cut the dough in half and freeze
1 stick butter, softened
3 Tablespoons Honey
1-2 tsp vanilla
Mix with mixer until well mixed. This recipe is an estimate of how I make it. I always taste it and a little more honey if its not sweet enough, its up to your liking.
Stays good in fridge for about a month.
