Freezing Baked Goods

Wrap the scones individually with plastic wrap before placing them in a plastic freezer bag.

I just made a batch of Scottish Oatmeal Scones with currants for Ken who is a dear family member.

Knowing that that he won't be able to eat them all at once and wanting them to stay fresh,  I prepared them for freezing by individually wrapping the scones in plastic wrap and putting them into a freezer bag.

Baked goods freeze very well and now Ken has a stockpile of scones and he can eat them at his leisure.

When Ken wants to have a scone all he has to do is pull one out of the freezer and let it thaw to room temperature or unwrap a frozen scone and heat it in a microwave for 20 to 30 seconds - so easy and so good with a cup of tea.

Be sure to write the date on the bag. Frozen baked goods are best enjoyed within two months of freezing.

  1. What a great idea for making baked goods last! I'm sure Ken will really enjoy being able to eat one of your delicious homemade scones every now and then with his tea or coffee!
