It has been a little cooler the last couple of weeks which has me craving Chili and scones. It dawned on my why don’t I make my own “Rhodes Rolls Dough”. I already have an awesome bread recipe so why not?
In mixing bowl combine:
2 Cups warm water
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/4 cup sugar
let stand for 10 minutes until bubbly
1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
Mix together and then add:
5-6 cups of flour
Once dough comes together in a ball and pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Place in a greased bowl. let double. Punch it down and knead for a few minutes. Cut of a chunks of dough, roll into balls and place on greased cookie sheets. Place in freezer until dough is firm. Remove from cookie sheets and put in Ziplock bags. These will be ready for the next awesome dish you will need them for.
To use: Take desired amount out and place greased muffin tins or a baking pan. Allow to thaw and raise. Brush melted butter on top to help them brown beautifully. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min.
If I am in a hurry in the morning and want to make scones. I will take a few dough balls and microwave for 30 seconds. When thawed I roll them out and fry them in vegetable oil. Serve with fresh Jam and butter.
