Scones freeze beautifully for last minute entertaining! Once scones are cut into the desired shape (triangle, square or round) place them (raw) on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze until hard (about 1 hour) Label a freezer safe zip top bag, place the frozen scones in the bag until ready to use. With this method you can bake all the scones or just a few. To bake, preheat oven according to the recipe, place frozen scones on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake (according to the recipe). I LOVE it! From freezer to oven!
