frequently asked questions

can i use other fruit?

Don’t like blueberries? Switch it out to your favorite fruit. Swap it with blackberries, strawberries, cherries, or raspberries. Peaches would also work well, but they are very moist, so don’t overuse them.

How do you keep scones fresh overnight?

Make sure you cover the scones with foil or plastic wrap. Another alternative would be to place it in an airtight container to preserve shelf life. If stored properly freshly baked scones should last about 2 days at room temperature.

Do you need to refrigerate scones?

These blueberry scones don’t need to be refrigerated if they will be consumed within 1-2 days. They are perfectly fine covered with plastic wrap at room temperature. Furthermore, if the scones contain any cream cheese or perishable ingredients it is safer to place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge.

How long do homemade scones stay fresh?

So, if stored at room temperature, homemade blueberry scones or any other scones should be good for 1-2 days. They will last about 3-4 days if they are stored in the fridge and reheated when ready to eat.

What is the best way to reheat scones?

The best way to reheat scones would be in the oven at 300 F for about 5-10 minutes. Prefer not to wait? They can be reheated in the microwave for about 10 seconds.
