How to Freeze Scones

To freeze scones, first bake them according to your recipe. Once they are done, let them cool completely. Then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for 2-3 hours. Once they are frozen, you can place them in a freezer bag or container and store them for up to 2 months.

Can you Make Scones Ahead of Time

Yes, you can make scones ahead of time. Scones are actually a great make-ahead breakfast option. Just make the dough, form it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake them, take the dough out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before shaping and baking.

What’s the difference between a scone and a biscuit? 

A biscuit is a savory, fluffy, soft, and slightly sweet bread. A scone, on the other hand, is a denser and drier bread.

To ensure that you making perfect scones that come out moist and fluffy, be sure to follow the recipe precisely and avoid making any substitutions.

Also, be sure to use cold ingredients and handle the dough as little as possible so that it doesn’t become tough. Overworked dough will result in tougher, drier scones.

How can I adapt the recipe if I don’t have strawberries? 

If you don’t have strawberries, feel free to use other fresh fruit instead in this basic scone recipe. Blueberries, raspberries or blackberries would all be great options. You could also use dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries or apricots.
