Q: HELP. I made a kitchen blunder yesterday — the first one in months and months — when I froze a batch of shaped scones for decadent breakfasts and realized a few hours later that I had forgotten to add the baking powder!

I rarely make mistakes like that, but I’d rather not throw it all away if I can avoid it. Is there any way I can save it? Could I thaw the dough out again, add baking powder, reshape and refreeze (I realize that the pastry probably wouldn’t have the most ideal texture, but still…)? There are two dozen scones in my freezer that need your help!

Editor: Amanda, I feel like this would be worth a try — I would thaw the dough overnight, though, and make sure it has truly thawed out.

Readers, any thoughts or suggestions? Ever tried something like this?
