Eggnog Scones

Do you still have some eggnog in your fridge from the holidays? I decided to use some this morning to make some eggnog scones. Delicious!

Scone Dough
2 ½ C white whole wheat flour 
½ C organic granulated sugar
½ t baking soda
1 t baking powder
8 T cold butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 C organic or homemade eggnog

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Using a pastry cutter, blend the butter into the dry ingredients until the dough resembles pea-sized chunks. Add the eggnog and use a spatula to form a ball.

Transfer to a parchment-lined surface and gently press into a disc. At this point, you can use a cookie cutter or simply cut the disc into wedges. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes. The scone will be nicely raised and slightly golden.

Remove the scones from the oven and set them on a wire rack to cool slightly while you make the eggnog glaze.

Eggnog Glaze
2 C powdered sugar
2 T organic or homemade eggnog

In a small bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and eggnog until you have a smooth glaze. Pour 1 tablespoon of glaze over the top of each scone. Let set up and serve warm.
