Utah (Scones and Honey Butter)

We're back from our break and ready to start back up with our 50 states unit studies. Believe it or not we're almost finished.

We are now studying the Western States. This week in our study of the Western States is Utah. The capital of Utah is Salt Lake City. Did you know that you haven't had a great scone until you've had one from Utah? Here's a yummy recipe to try...


Utah Scones
1 quart warm buttermilk
2 packages (2 tablespoons) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
10 to 11 cups flour

Heat buttermilk; pour into a large mixing bowl. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add to the buttermilk: sugar, eggs, oil, salt, baking powder, baking soda, dissolved yeast and 6 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Place in a greased bowl; turn. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in bulk; punch down. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. Roll out 1/2-inch thick and cut into squares just before frying in hot, deep vegetable oil.
Serves 15 to 18; recipe can be halved. You can serve these with honey butter.
Honey Butter
1 cup (sticks) butter, softened
1 1/4 cups honey
Beat together butter and honey for 10 minutes, until fluffy.
If you are from Utah feel free to share a recipe (yes of course it can be scones!) with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you what's next in our study of the Western States. Thank you again for stopping by to learn along with us.
