Freezing Scones. The Experiment!

Freezing Scones. The Experiment! What happened when I froze prepared scones before baking and then baked them from frozen.

Does this beautiful scone look familiar? Regular readers will recognize it as a very popular recipe from last month. I actually made this batch of beautiful scones a full 4 weeks ago!

When I first made this batch I thought the result was excellent but had to admit that they did take a bit of effort to accomplish. That’s because of the necessity to bake and freeze the cheesecake component a day in advance.

With all that effort going in, I thought it was a bit of a shame that their enjoyment would be so fleeting. I decided to experiment with freezing half the batch to bake later. Boy, was I glad I did!

I woke early this morning and placed the scones on  a parchment lined baking sheet and let them thaw for about 30 minutes before popping them into a 400 degree hot oven for about 25 minutes. I think letting them thaw in the fridge overnight would also work very well.

The result of this little experiment was outstanding! I don’t know that I would be able to tell the difference between a freshly made batch and those baked from frozen.

From now on I will be routinely freezing scones and maybe making double batches to enjoy several weeks down the road.

So if you are trying to plan a brunch in advance, need just a few for your small family or yourself, or just would like to have fresh scones for weeks with practically no extra effort every weekend, this idea will be right up your alley. 

Heck, forget weekends, I think these would make Monday mornings much more tolerable! 🙂

Corn syrup for the golden syrup and any type of crisp oat cookie will do. Maybe even graham crackers.
