Mormon Scones

I've tried to figure out why scones in Utah don't look like scones anywhere else, but whatever the reason, this is how I make scones. You probably call them something else.  This recipes makes a lot.

2 cups warm buttermilk, yogurt, or milk with a bit of vinegar added
1 Tablespoon yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 T oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 T baking powder
1/4 tsp soda
4 cups whole wheat flour, plus more for rolling
Oil for frying

Combine everything to make a soft dough, cover, and let rise.  Punch down, cover, and let it rise again in the fridge overnight (you can skip the first rise if necessary).  Roll out and cut into whatever shape you like and fry in hot oil.  I shallow fry them on a griddle.  You can roll them out thicker or thinner as you prefer. Drain on paper towels.
