This is a tradition I have tried to carry on with my own kids. However, my kids always just go for the cinnamon and sugar so I don't even put the other stuff out unless they ask for it. So we made scones together this past Sunday and I thought I would share it with you.
On the back of the package there are two defrost methods. One is a 3-5 hours defrost method and the other is a quicker 1 1/2 hour defrost method. I didn't use either of those methods. I knew I was going to make these Sunday morning so Saturday night I put 12 of the rolls in a baking dish and placed in the fridge to defrost overnight.

There was not any measuring with the sugar - I just added a bunch of sugar to a bowl and sprinkled/stirred the cinnamon in until it had the right look/flavor. I always have a ton of cinnamon sugar left over and we use it for cinnamon toast throughout the month.
We even got out our Mickey Mouse cookie cutter that I bought in Disneyland to make some shaped scones.
Once the scones are ready you want to put them in a frying pan that has preheated oil in it. I set my fryer at 350 degrees.
I usually put a small ball of dough in first to make sure the oil is hot. You want the dough to sizzle - if it doesn't it will get to oily. So wait to make sure the oil is heated up. Once the scones have browned on one side flip them over and cook them on the other side.
