Eggnog Cinnamon Scones {Recipe}

Eggnog has made its appearance on grocery store shelves, and for me that means baking with eggnog. That’s right. I don’t like to drink eggnog, but I sure do like to cook with it! One of my very favorite recipes featuring eggnog is my Cranberry Eggnog Bread. That stuff is divine! I decided to experiment with one of my scone recipes, and Eggnog Cinnamon Scones were the yummy results.
These scones are nice and tender and full of yummy cinnamon chips. The nutmeg boosts the eggnog flavor, so don’t leave it out. Unless you hate eggnog. In which case you probably shouldn’t be making these in the first place. 😉
scone-recipeIf you happen to have any scones left, they freeze well in ziplock bags. Just zap them in the microwave for about 30 seconds for a yummy breakfast treat or snack. Delish!cinnamon-scones-recipe
