Scones, not the English kind..the fried bread kind

By Stephanie

I let my kids help pick the menu for the week.  My youngest usually asks for Navajo tacos.  Fried bread with seasoned hamburger, cheese and lettuce.  (I didn’t get a pic because they ate them too fast).    And we have the leftover fried bread or scones with butter and honey.  YUMMO.  I mean what isn’t delicious fried? 


Scones or Navajo Tacos

makes about 24 depending on how big you make yours

2 1/2 cups warm water

1 1/2 Tbsp yeast

2 Tbsp  melted butter

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup powdered milk

8 cup flour

Mix together water and yeast and 2 cups flour.  Let sit 10 minutes.  Add in the rest of ingredients and mix well.  Let sit covered with a damp towel for 1 hour.  Divide dough in half and then portion into three portions.  I then divide mine into four balls and let sit on a greased cookie sheet .  Let rest while you divide the other half.  Heat a good amount of oil to 350 degrees.  At least 1” deep in fryer or large pan.  Flatten out dough one ball at a time until with your hands stretching as you go being careful not to get holes in it, but getting it as thin as possible.   Drop into hot oil being careful not to splatter oil on you (or anything else for that matter).  Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side and don’t overcrowd the pan so the temperature of the oil doesn’t drop.  Take out and put onto paper towel  lined pan.  Serve immediately.
