It doesn’t matter what you call them – beignets, fry bread, sopapillas – these FRIED SCONES are comfort food heaven!
It wasn’t until about two years ago when I learned what traditional scones were. Turns out, they’re nothing like fried scones. But as delicious as traditional scones are, fried ones are better! There are a few different names for these babies – sopapillas, beignets, Indian fry bread, etc. Growing up though, they were always just “scones” for me. And they’re delicious.

The thing that makes these babies is the honey butter that you lather them in. We had these every year at girl’s camp, up in the mountains, and it was like a little bit of heaven on those cold mornings. This is comfort food at it’s finest! Seriously.
Be sure to try these with our Raspberry Honey Butter as well!
