Neverending Scones

I had a special request from Aunt Gayle to post this recipe. I shared it on my family blog a few years ago, and she says it's been a family favorite ever since! These are truly addictive and such a wonderful treat!

Neverending Scones

3 Tbsp. yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups cold milk
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 eggs (beaten)
6 1/2 cups unsifted flour

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Combine milk, oil, sugar, salt, eggs, and half of the flour. Add the yeast and continue to add the remaining flour. Dough will be sticky. Do not knead. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. (If you don't have time to do this, just add a little more flour to the dough and proceed). Roll out dough on a floured board to 3/8 inch thick. Cut in pieces.  Fry in 350 degree oil for about 2 minutes. Makes 50-60 scones if cut in 2 or 2 1/2 inch pieces. Dough can be refrigerated for up to a week, but it will continue to rise each day.
