I'm producing cheese scones in number for tomorrow am. Is it acceptable practice to build them tonight, put them in the fridge, then sprinkle cheese and cook in the morning?
I would be worried they would dry out, they do freeze well though I believe, you could cook today and just take straight out of freezer in the morning.
Not an expert just going from experience, sure someone else will be far more knowledgeable.
Save some for all of us lot here won't you, however you do them.
That won't work Nut, once you put liquid with the flour that's it, need to bake straight away. You could get to the breadcrumb stage and keep that, dry, then just add the milk and cook straight away tomorow. Afraid it's early start me dear!
They keep a supply of dry mix in the cupboard, we used to sell them as home cooked, but the owner bought a catering sized packet of mix. Well, it was true, they were home cooked!
They can be cooked first then frozen, then revived in the oven but they do have to be cooked first.
Thanks folks, I think I'll go for the dry mix and the rest in the morning.
I have made them before annmarie but make and cook straight away.
Oooh - you are psychic Nut - I need to do this too in a few weeks time & was wondering the same thing. Will go for the dry mix too.
Thanks for asking the question though
When my (business) partner and I had a catering business/B&B/tea shop we made scones from scratch every morning - it didn't take long - there were always a few cooked ones in the freezer in case of emergencies but we tried not to use them in the tea shop if at all possible.
As I said Nut, early start for you, how many are you going to make.
