Scones with Blackberry Sauce
Scones or Indian Fry Bread Recipe
For the Dough:
1.5 cups warm water
1 package active dry yeast OR 2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
4 1/4 bread flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar

In your bread machine, add all the ingredients as instructed by your bread machine manufacturer. Usually its the liquids first, followed by seasonings, then flour - and very last you make a well in the flour and add the yeast.
Set your bread machine on the 'dough cycle'. When it is done, remove the dough and wrap in plastic wrap leaving room for it to raise. Place in warm space and allow to rise. Once it is done raising, heat up 1- 2 cups of oil in fryer or pan sufficient for frying with enough 2 inches of oil. Slice off large serving size off of dough and stretch carefully on all sides and place in oil. Fry each side until golden brown and then place on paper towel to dry.
For the Blackberry sauce that can be made ahead:
2/3 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. orange juice
2 c. fresh or frozen blackberries
Dash of salt
Combine butter and cornstarch in saucepan. Add sugar, salt, orange juice and blackberries. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thick. Strain and remove stems before serving.
Take one fried scone and top with honey, blackberry sauce, and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
