Grandma Macbeth's Scones

I'm posting this just for my friend Heidi who loves all things fried and requested this for her upcoming visit. Best served fresh and hot with honey butter and powdered sugar. Also good with perserves.

2 T yeast
1/2 c water, lukewarm
2 c milk, scalded then cooled
1/2 c shortening
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp salt
3 eggs
6 c flour

combine water and yeast and allow to dissolve. Combine all ingredients well to form a soft dough. chill for at least one hour preferably overnight. Roll out dough on a floured surface then cut into strips or shapes and deep fry. Serve hot.
