As I was looking back over the types of recipes that I’ve posted over this past year, I saw that scones were definitely at the top of the list! This is my seventh scone recipe of the year. Which means I had a lot of tasty mornings.

And, I’ve made more than the recipes that have made it to the blog. I love a good scone to go with my morning coffee!

Tender and soft, scones are the perfect canvas for so many flavors. And while I like many different flavors of scones anytime of year, I usually find myself making scones that are filled with seasonal flavors.

These cinnamon eggnog scones are no different!

When I went to go make scones, I saw the container of eggnog sitting in the fridge and knew that I needed to make some eggnog scones.

I’m not a huge fan of drinking eggnog plain, but I love baking with it. I usually buy a carton of eggnog each year and end up using it all for baking.

The warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg pair well with the eggnog flavor and a sweet eggnog glaze tops off these irresistible scones!

Grab a mug of your favorite coffee or tea, a blanket, and a scone, and you’re ready for a cozy winter morning!
