Eggnog Scones

Easy 30 minute eggnog scones with eggnog cinnamon glaze! It seems like back in 1999 when we were all worrying about Y2K, eggnog was strictly for drinking.

Well not in 2015! Times have changed.

Now I’m not sure if people like drinking eggnog better or if they like eating eggnog flavored things. Maybe the best combo is to drink a glass of eggnog while eating an eggnog infused treat.

Easy 30 minute eggnog scones with eggnog cinnamon glaze! If you’re new to the whole ‘eggnog in food’ scene, the possibilities are endless! Eggnog.. pancakes, cookies, fudge, waffles, cake, frosting, cheesecake, donuts, cinnamon rolls!! Is anyone else getting really hungry? :)

Well now you can drink your eggnog and eat it too – in scone form!!

I love scones because they are easy to make. There’s no need to chill the dough in the fridge before baking, no layers upon layers for assembly. It’s simple – make the dough, shape it, bake it, glazzzze it and eat it.

Extra emphasis on the glaze is always a good idea. It’s kind of like ‘I’ll take an order of eggnog glaze with a side of scone, please’ :)

Easy 30 minute eggnog scones with eggnog cinnamon glaze! Everyone seems to have a different method of making scones. I like to precut my dough using a pizza cutter, bake the scones for 15 minutes, then re-slice and pull the scones apart and allow them to bake for 5-10 more minutes. They are much easier to separate when they are semi-baked rather than all doughy.

These eggnog scones get their eggnog flavor from Silk’s Dairy Free (and egg free!) Nog! I’m in that group of people who are slightly weirded out by the thought of drinking regular eggnog because all I can think about is eggs. Anyone else in that group?! I’m sure I’ll know who you are when I see you loading up your cart at the grocery store with Silk Nog :)

  8. Bake for 15 minutes. Then re-cut the scones using the pizza cutter, pull them apart on the baking sheet and bake for 5-10 additional minutes until they are golden.

  1. OMG Y2K that totally bring up some memories. I was so scared that all the power was going to go out I was glued to the TV watching the ball drop in time square sure it was going to go dark. Then I remembered how lame I was for thinking that Y2K would only be working on EST. Hello it has been 2000 in Australia for 12 hours…haha. (It also just occurred to me I should totally write about my lame Y2k preparation story on my blog…haha) However, I’m glad we got over this whole “eggnog is just for drinking” business because these scones look like perfection! 

  2. I could totally dig into a few of those with my cappuccino right now.

  3. I love eggnog in anything and everything (and with a glass of it on the side!), and these scones look perfect! They’d be a fun and festive holiday brunch!

  4. I can’t resist a good scone! Wish I had one to go with my coffee!

  5. Beth, Your scones look fabulous! I love that eggnog is for more than drinking :)

  8. I am definitely in favor of eggnog-all-the-things…and I want to start with these scones! And now I’ll be on the lookout for SILK not (I haven’t seen that yet).

  9. Dear Beth, I would love one of these scones right about now.  I know my daughter would love if I made her a batch of these.  Now that pumpkin spice is off the shelves, it’s all about eggnog! Pinning for later. xo, Catherine
