Freezing scones

roxlet | Nov 18, 201108:21 AM     4

According to King Arthur Flour's web site, freezing scones before baking improves them:

"For best texture and highest rise, place the pan of scones in the freezer for 30 minutes, uncovered.

And while we’re at it – here’s a tip on freezing unbaked scones. If you don’t want to bake scones right away, shape and put them on a pan, but don’t brush with milk, nor sprinkle with sugar. Place in the freezer, covered with plastic, and freeze until solid, which should take an hour or so. Remove from the pan, and bag airtight; return to the freezer.

When you’re ready for scones, there’s no need to thaw them; just place frozen scones on a pan, brush with milk, sprinkle with sugar, and bake as directed below, giving the scones about 5 additional minutes in the oven."

That is a great tip, and would really help for breakfast. You could also only bake the scones you need.
