With the holidays and busy seasons approaching, I have to plan ahead and find ways to take care of myself and my family without losing my mind. I have to make my time really count in my kitchen. So I meal prep and stock my freezer with quick breakfasts. Scones are one of my favorites because of how simple they are to freeze, thaw, and bake. So I am giving you my strategy on how to do this and a list of things you need!
So you can double batch your next scone recipe and freeze one for a later date and give yourself a morning off!
Slice your scones like normal. My recipes all make 8 scones. Place them on the cake cardboard with a little space between each slice. Wrap them in plastic wrap, both directions. The plastic wrap helps prevent freezer burn. Slide the cardboard into the gallon sized freezer bag. Zip it closed. They will neatly stack up in your freezer.
To thaw and bake:
The night before you want to bake these, Pull them out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator. The next morning, preheat your oven to 375. Unwrap the scones, and place them on your cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 and bake another 5 minutes.
I hope this helps you make a plan and take care of yourself in the middle of all the holiday crazy!
