Navajo Fried Bread aka SCONES

What is better on a cold day than a hot scone with jam or honey butter? If you can think of anything that is TRULY better I would be shocked. Talk about major comfort food! And the best part? They are SOOOO easy to make! These are an excellent compliment to any meal. The picture is courtesy of Tangerine's Kitchen and can be found here.

NAVAJO FRIED BREAD

4 c. flour (white or wheat)
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ c. warm water
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. shortening (or oil)

Mix ingredients together. Knead until dough is soft and elastic and does not stick to bowl (if necessary, add a little more warm water). Shape dough into balls the size of a small peach. Pat back and forth by hand until dough is about ¼ or ½ inch thick and round. Melt 2 c. shortening or oil in heavy frying pan. Carefully put the rounds into hot oil, one at a time. Brown lightly on both sides. Be careful not to pike into round or it will be greasy. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with jam and jelly.
