These Bakery-Style Eggnog Scones are flaky, buttery, and loaded with eggnog flavor! Topped with a sweet eggnog glaze, they’re perfect for Christmas morning! Best served warm, with a cup of coffee or tea.

Is it accurate to say that you are an eggnog darling? I need to concede… it’s not my number one beverage. Never has been, and now, presumably never will be. Yet, I LOVE heating with it It has a particularly, wanton, merry flavor! So during the occasion months, I generally stock up so I can make huge loads of new eggnog plans for you!

Yet, my #1 eggnog treat to date must be these basic eggnog scones. These brilliant earthy colored wonders are luxuriously spiced and stacked with eggnog flavor. Also, made with basic fixings like flour, sugar, heating powder, cold spread, flavors, and egg nog.


Furthermore, when I state cold, I mean incredibly COLD!!! Room temperature margarine won’t do! Truth be told, I really propose you pop your margarine in the cooler for around 15 to 20 minutes before you plan on working it into the scone mixture. Particularly if your home is exceptionally warm or you live in a warm atmosphere. This additional progression decreases the danger of the margarine mellowing a lot as it’s worked into the mixture.


For the Eggnog Scones:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (*not packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed 
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice  
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, VERY cold and cut into tiny pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 2 Tablespoons sparkling sugar, optional 

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons eggnog 
  • 2 teaspoons bourbon (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, optional but recommended to cut the sweetness 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg.


For the Eggnog Scones:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°(F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, mix well to combine.
  3. Cut the butter into small cubes then, using your fingers, two forks, or a pastry cutter, work it into the dough until it resembles a coarse meal. The chunks of butter should be about the size of peas. 
  4. In a glass measuring cup whisk together the egg, eggnog, and vanilla exact.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture into the center of the flour mixture. Use a spatula to stir everything together until just moistened. Don’t worry if the dough looks dry and shaggy! 
  6. Empty the loose dough out onto a clean, lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough together until it’s cohesive, then  shape it into an 8-inch disc. 
  7. Using a large knife, cut the disc into 8 even wedges and carefully transfer them to the prepared sheet, placing them 2″ apart.
  8. Lightly brush the top of each scone with a little eggnog, then sprinkle with sparkling sugar, if using. 
  9. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until light golden brown. Allow scones to cool for 5 minutes, then drizzle with glaze (if using), and serve warm!

For the Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl combine the confectioners’ sugar, eggnog, bourbon (if using), vanilla extract, and spices. Whisk until completely smooth. Drizzle over scones.
