ABOUT German Scones With Cinnamon Honey Butter RECIPE

Buttery light and fluffy fried scones - so easy to make and dangerously tasty! German scones are more like a mixture between fried bread and doughnuts. These are not your typical scones served with tea, this is deep fried dough that is served with sweet butter! I have made this recipe a few times and I must mention that it is definitely a Keeper!
