How long can I store Scones :

These scones are perfect in fresh. But you can keep these Orange Cranberry Scones up to 2 days at room temperature or in the refrigerator for some more days. And if you mind storing these scones for later, remember to store scones without the orange glaze, You can add the glaze when you serve. But I don’t think you can store these yummy Orange Cranberry Scones for that long. If you refrigerated them, you can microwave Scones before serve as they are best served warm.
