I got my grandmother's recipe one time. I wrote it down as she told it to me, so it's not typed up in a traditional manner, but I like it that way. It reminds me of her. They are really good. And if you can't find honey butter, butter them up then slather them with honey. Really good on a cold night. I hope you try them and enjoy them. (Thank you Grandma!!)
Dissolve 4 tablespoons dry yeast in 1 cup lukewarm water
Scald 4 cups of milk and let it cool
Add six (6) eggs
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup oil or shortening
2 cups sugar
Mix all together. Add flour to make a soft dough. Raise once. Then roll out, cut and fry. This makes a lot, but you can keep in fridge and use it as you like it, or it makes delicious sweet rolls or hot rolls you can freeze.
As scones, serve warm with honey butter.
