Directions:
Combine water, sugar and powdered milk in large bowl
Whisk flour and yeast, together into water mixture

Mix well (add more flour if necessary to make a batter-like consistency)

Using a heavy spoon, start mixing in more floura 1/2 C at a time to make a soft, slightly sticky dough.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead dough several times until fairly smooth. Form into a ball and place in bowl sprayed with oil. Let rise 15 or more minutes.

Start heating oil in heavy Dutch oven to med-high
With floured or oiled hands, pinch off a small piece of dough to test oil temperature.

When temp is perfect, pinch off a golf ball-size (or a little larger for a bigger scone) Stretch it flat and carefully place in hot oil. It takes about 1-2 min on each side.
