  2. Reconstitute the cheese. Make the corn salsa and cilantro cream, and cut the lettuce. Place all prepped items in the fridge to chill.
  3. In a deep fry pan, add frying oil (at least 1 1/2 inches deep) and heat to about 300 degrees F.
  4. When dough is ready, cut into 14-16 pieces, and pull or flatten to thin round pieces. Lay scone dropping away from you into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown.
