How To Store Scones:
Scones are a tasty treat, but they can be a little tricky to store. If you don’t want your scones going stale before you have the chance to eat them, follow this guide on how to store scones.
Store: You can easily store these in an airtight container or Ziploc Bag. They will stay at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.
