Mormon, Scones or Indian Fry Bread

1 pkg. active dry yeast (1 tbsp.)
1/4 cup warm water- about 110 degrees
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup melted margarine, cooled
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
about 6 cups flour
oil to fry with

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Combine eggs (in measuring cup) with enough milk to make 2 cups liquid; add to yeast mixture along with butter, salt, sugar, stirring until well blended. Stir in 5 cups of the flour, one cup at a time, beating until smooth after each addition. Dough will be stiff.

Knead dough 5 to 10 minutes until smooth and satiny. Place in greased bowl, turn to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Punch dough down and divide into egg sized chunks, make into flattened rounds and let rise in a warm place. Deep fry until brown. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. I take out whatever dough we need for a meal and refrigerate the rest, using as needed.
