If you are looking for a baked good to enjoy beside any number of seasonal warm beverages from a classic cup of tea to a peppermint hot chocolate, these eggnog and almond scones are an excellent choice.
Created by Cindy from the food blog Hungry Girl Por Vida, the scone recipe contains Christmas-appropriate nutmeg and almond extract to really enhance the flavor of the eggnog. The blogger recommends slathering them with a tart cranberry orange curd instead of the traditional lemon. The eggnog almond scones are also topped with more sliced almonds to really get that nutty taste across.
These festive treats are perfect for Christmas morning or time spent at home with family over the holidays, whether as a light breakfast or yummy snack.
