Homemade Scones – Guest Post from Crafty Meggy!

Hello to all you Designed Decor readers out there! I’m excited to be here today with a yummy recipe for you! First off, I’ll tell you a little about myself, I’m Megan and I blog over at Crafty Meggy. I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking and crafting in my spare time, which doesn’t happen a lot! LOL I’m a mom to 3 crazy but lovable boys and have a wonderful husband I’ve been married to for 10 and a half years. I love blogging about all my crafting adventures and hope you’ll come over and check them out! :)

I am going to share a recipe that is near and dear to my heart, scones.
My grandma passed away last year in May and it was really hard. She was such a wonderful grandma and showed everyone so much love! She was also an amazing cook! She made the best bread and scones ever! :) I remember growing up and eating scones she would make and have always cherished her memories.

I got the recipe from my sister, who said that Grandma would usually make 2 loaves of bread and then make scones out of what was left over.

Here’s her recipe:

Grandma Doty’s Homemade Bread/Scones 1. Boil 2 cups skim milk & 2 Tbsp. Crisco. Stir continuously 2. Put 2 Tbsp salt in large bowl, add boiling water 3. Add 2 cups cold water *Activate yeast during boiling
– 2 Tbsp yeast (heaping)
– 1/2 cup warm water
– 2 Tbsp sugar
4. Add yeast mixture to warm milk mixture 5. Mix in 6-10 cups flour 6. knead 25-50 times 7. Let rise 1-2 hours Knead 25-50 times 9. Rise double in pans

Bake @ 350 for 30-35 min.
Makes 3-5 loaves

I actually wasn’t patient enough to wait for my sister to email me the recipe, so I found a different one and my husband made it while I was at church on Sunday. When I got home I went through the process of rolling out the dough and making the scones. Here’s a step by step of what to do:

The dough before it rose.

It had doubled after about 2 hours.

I rolled it out,

I used a pizza cutter to cut the dough. I usually use a knife, but I got
this idea from the Pioneer Woman.

I got out a plate and put on some paper towels to soak up the oil after
the scones were cooked.

Turn the oil on medium heat and let it heat up for about 5-10 minutes.
Once it’s about to boil, stick one scone in the oil.

Let it sit for about 30 seconds.

Then flip it over with tongs.

I usually cook 3 in a pan at a time so I don’t get too overwhelmed.

This is what they look like when they’re cooked. Pull them out of the
oil and Enjoy! :)

I’m thankful for a grandma who introduced me to this food and that I
grew up on it. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
