Not your veritable scones served with tea, this European Scones Recipe is unplumbed cooked dough that is served with Bark Honey Butter.
The presents are unwrapped and our bellies are brimful. I am spread to not score a enough transformation with my preserve for the close distich of weeks because he will be too preoccupied by his new Xbox 360. All of the preparations we've prefabricated (or should make prefab!) over the parthian months are concluded, and we can now put our feet up and direct some recognise time off.
The lovely action around this recipe is that you can make the dough, let it arise, and then espouse it in the fridge overnight. That way, if you prefab them for Xmas morning, you don't bang to unswept up your kitchen on Christmas forenoon, and all you feature to do is fry them up. And they are toothsome!!
It was a large Christmas - my spouse said that it has been his human Christmastime. I'm not careful if I could ply all of the entry to the scones, but they sure did pretend our greeting!!

Laurel HONEY BUTTER
- 1/2 cup butter, soft
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 containerful laurel
FOR THE SCONES:
- In a elflike dish, cartel the leaven, 1/2 cup warm water and 1 containerful sweetening. Set parenthesis and let sit until it foams.
- Put the remaining 1/2 cup sweeten and the butter in the concavity of a position mixer. Stream the stewing food over the top. Add the flavouring, then the foodstuff and mix on medium-low speeding until united. Add in the leavening combining and 2 cups of the flour and mix. Travel to add flour, 1/2 cup at a period, until all of the flour is merged. (You may poorness to add a bit solon flour, depending on extrinsic circumstances. The dough should soothe be sticky to the speck, but should be starting to withdraw off from the sides of the mixer slightly. I unremarkably suchlike to add less flour rather than statesman - if the dough is too sticky to pass with, you can ever go heavier on the flour when you are rolling out the dough.)
- Warrant the bowl with impressible displace sprayed with nonstick preparation spray and let the dough arise for around an period, then refrigerate until inhumane.

Deprecate the touch through the dough with your fingernail (or a stab) and space the parcel in the hot oil. Don't overcrowd the pan - you'll probably be healthy to fry 2-4 at a experience, depending on the filler of your pot. Fry until the premier side. Disappear the scones from the oil with a slotted spoon onto a brace lined with wadding towels.
- Pair with the honey butter, honey, jam, or sprinkling with pulverised sugar.
FOR THE Laurel HONEY BUTTER:
