Cheesy Kale Scones
Recipe question for: Cheesy Kale Scones

Definitely a great recipe to freeze ahead! Just make the recipe and shape the scones, then freeze them once you have shaped them. I find its easier to make slightly smaller scones when freezing them. Usually I put the shaped scones on a baking sheet directly in the freezer for about 45 minutes, then transfer the frozen scones to a ziplock bag and put them back in the freezer. You'll need to add a minute or two onto the baking time, but otherwise no modifications. They can go straight from freezer to oven without thawing. Good luck!

Just piggybacking off of Posie's wonderful answer, I find that scones actually bake BETTER when they've been frozen. They hold their shape better and the resting time makes for a softer crumb. Shaped scones are clearly easier to freeze, but I've also been known to roll scones/biscuits out to a rectangle, freeze the rectangle and then cut the individual scones. It makes for better presentation when displaying them for sale.
