Scones are best when freshly baked and warm -- served with butter or jam. If you make a large batch, refrigerate or freeze them for later eating. When you want to serve them, all that's necessary to recapture the fresh baked taste is a few minutes of reheating the scones in your oven.

Tea with scones is an old tradition.

Step 1

Place frozen scones onto a baking sheet at room temperature while still wrapped and wait 30 minutes for the scones to thaw.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Wait 10 minutes to allow the oven to reach the set temperature throughout.

Step 3

Unwrap the thawed scones and arrange on the baking sheet. Make sure the scones do not touch one another when placed on the sheet.

Step 4

Place the baking sheet containing the scones into the preheated oven. Set the baking sheet in the center of the oven.

Step 5

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 10 minutes until warmed. Put on oven mitts and remove the baking sheet from the oven. Remove the scones from the baking sheet with a spatula and place onto a plate for serving.
