Mickey shaped scones - Its what's for dinner

New Young Family tradition - - fried scones in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head. What's better than bread? Fried bread. What's better than fried bread? Fried bread shaped into a famous friendly rodent! That paired with homemade honey butter, and you can't go wrong! It's delicious and nutritious --scratch that. It's just delicious.

Honey Butter Recipe

1/2 cup real butter

1/3 cup honey

1/2 cup powdered sugar

The powdered sugar makes a world of a difference to the consistency and taste of the honey butter. I got this recipe from my favorite cookbook, Our Best Bites - Mormon Moms in the Kitchen. It is inspired by a popular recipe blog by Sara Wells and Katie Jones. I got my book autographed by them when I bought it at the BYU-I bookstore. It was so neat to meet them.

What I like about this cookbook is that there is a picture for EVERY recipe, they give you great tips and serving suggestions, and the recipes are just more simplified and more reasonable to make than other fancier cookbooks. I've given one to my mom, sister, and sister-in-law, just to give you a clue on how much I love it!


  1. I have to agree with your what's better than list!
    I am going to try that recipe for honey butter...I want that's on my wish list! :)

  2. On your short visit next month, we will get the stuff and you make the fried bread. Deal?
