Q: I would like to pre-make scones that I can freeze and then later take out to bake in small batches as an easy, on-the-go breakfast for myself or my impatient toddler. What is the best way to do this and still preserve the moist interior and crisp crust?

Should I bake them straight from the freezer (and how does that affect baking temp/time)? Should I let them thaw first? Should I bake them before I freeze them?

Thanks for any suggestions and advice!

Editor: Scones are rich enough that they freeze very well unbaked! You don’t need to thaw them completely before baking, just let them sit on the baking sheet while the oven is heating to start to take the chill off. This post has some more details on freezing and baking scones:
