German Scones

Adapted from Simply the Best Recipes from the Ruby Valley

2 packages dry yeast
1/2 c warm water
1 T sugar + 1/2 c sugar
1 c boiling water
1/2 c margarine, partially melted
2 t salt
3 beaten eggs
5 1/2- 6 c flour

1.  Dissolve yeast in water.  Add 1 T sugar.  
2.  In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 c sugar, margarine, and salt.  Pour 1 cup boiling water over mixture.
3.  Add eggs, yeast mixture, and flour to margarine mixture.
4.  Let rise for 1 hour, then refrigerate.  When desired, roll out very thing and cut in 2 inch squares.  Fry in hot fat.

*This was a treat for Father's Day breakfast.  Serve with fresh fruit, jam, honey, or whatever you like.  The only thing I would change is divide the recipe in half or even less--this recipe made enough to feed a whole neighborhood!  I didn't count, but it probably made at least 5 dozen.
