How to Store Basic Scones

If you are like me, you love to make basic scones and then change the recipe in order to put a different twist on it. That is what I did when I decided I wanted to try pumpkin scones. If you like to make a large batch of these scones, you will want to make sure you are storing them properly. If not, the scones will become dry and not very appealing. Store the scones in an airtight container or in a freezer bag in order to protect the scones from the air.

Can Scones be Frozen

If you have more scones than you can eat before they go stale, you can freeze the scones. It is important to keep the scones in an airtight container or in freezer bags. I like to wrap the scones in plastic wrap before adding them into a freezer bag to keep the scones fresher longer.

You can, also, freeze unbaked scones and enjoy hot from the oven scones any day of the week. Just freeze on a baking sheet until firm, tightly wrap in plastic wrap and place in a ziploc freezer bag. When ready to bake just pop into the oven straight from the freezer, no need to thaw. Just add a few more minutes to the baking time.

  • baking powder

How to make pumpkin scones

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with fit the paddle attachment, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Add the butter and toss with a fork to coat with the flour mixture. Mix on medium-low speed until the texture resembles coarse cornmeal, with the butter pieces no larger than small peas.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half-and-half and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and form the dough into a ball. Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a 1-inch thick rectangle about 4 inches by 12 inches. Use a large knife to slice the dough making three equal portions. Cut each of the portions in an X pattern (four pieces) so you end up with 12 triangular slices of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.

While the scones are cooling, make the powdered sugar glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and milk together until smooth. When scones are cool, use a pastry brush to spread plain glaze over the top of each scone. Allow to firm.

While the powdered sugar glaze is firming, combine all of the ingredients for the spiced glaze. Drizzle over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving (about an hour).
