Scones (from my college friend Robyn)

It's winter, or rainy and cloudy 24 x 7 in the Pacific Northwest. Time for comfort food!

1 C Milk
1 tsp Salt
1/4 C Margarine
1/4 C Sugar
1/2 C Warm Water
3 pkgs (each pkg is 2 1/4 tsp) yeast (I used rapid rise)
2 eggs, beaten
5 1/4 C flour

Put milk in microwave on High for 2 min (mine had a little film on the top afterward that I scooped, maybe stir it halfway or something:) Stir in marg, sugar, salt until marg is melted. Set aside.

Disolve yeast in warm water. Add milk and eggs to yeast, stir. Add flour a little at a time. Beat well after each addition, until dough can be handled. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic. (I didn't knead that long and these still turned out to be the best scones I've ever made). Let rise 30 min. Stretch into scones and fry in oil on medium heat until brown on both sides (turning once). (Be generous with the oil in your pan and let it get hot before adding:)
