If there is one drink that says Christmas, it would have to be eggnog. Whether you make it homemade or buy it already made at the grocery store, enjoy it spiked or non-alcoholic, it’s one of the most popular drinks during holiday gatherings.

You may also enjoy the flavor of eggnog in some of your favorite treats. Eggnog is also excellent for adding holiday flavor to baked goods, breakfast recipes, or even to add to other drinks such as coffee or tea.

One of our most popular holiday recipes here on our blog is our Eggnog Biscotti recipe. It’s a crispy Italian cookie with eggnog baked right into the cookie and used in theglaze. They are delicious with a cup of coffee, unique for trading in holiday cookie exchanges, and their sturdiness makes that ideal for shipping to loved ones.

A less “sturdy” treat — but equally delicious — is what we’re sharing today: Spiced Eggnog Scones recipe.

Scones are a type of quick bread, baked in individual servings. They are usually a bit sweet and often have a glaze. They also tend to be a bit delicate and “crumbly” for lack of a better word. While their texture is more like a biscuit than a muffin, we consider them to be more of an alternative to muffins. We really like scones with great with coffee or tea, for enjoying as a breakfast or a snack.

This Spiced Eggnog Scones recipe is perfect for enjoying during the holidays. Not only is eggnog baked right inside of the scone, but the top has a delicious eggnog drizzle.

Making theseSpiced Eggnog Scones is quite simple. You’ll first combine the ingredients to make a dough. Then, you’ll shape the dough into a 1″ thick circle. Before baking, you’ll cut the dough into 6 or 8 wedges, depending on how large you want each scone to be. Then, they are baked and then cooled before drizzle with an eggnog glaze. So good!

    Made these. Flavour is nice – subtle egg nog. Recipe could use about 1/4-1/2 cup less flour. Cook time at 400F is too long. I brought them out at 18 minutes and the bottoms were super toasty…I’d suggest closer to 15-18 minutes.
