Scented with nutmeg, studded with plump cranberries…and topped with creamy eggnog glaze. Make up a batch of 5 Ingredient Eggnog Cranberry Scones for happy last-minute guests.
Some years the kids and I get a lot of holiday baking done. Like the year we made a Gingerbread Zoo. (Wow, we must’ve been totally snowed in that year.)
Some years: Not so much. Like the year we moved from Chicago to southern Illinois a week before Christmas with a three-month old baby….
But every year, we make a couple batches of these Eggnog Cranberry Scones. My baby (who is now four) can mix them with help; her 11-year-old sister mixes and bakes herself. With only five ingredients, they’re easy to bake up a batch for:
- Friends who stop over for a Christmas cup of tea
- Last minute guests
- The Christmas cookie exchange (interpreting the word ‘cookie’ loosely)
I posted this recipe for 3 Ingredient Cranberry Eggnog Scones a couple years ago and it was even picked up by Relish Magazine (the print version of the mag did attribute the recipe to moi!) But I’ve updated the recipe since then to include a must-make two-ingredient Eggnog Glaze. And boy, is it ever worth adding these extra two ingredients.
Happy baking – whether you have a big chunk of baking time – or just a little bit of time to enjoy it this year. A little holiday baking. In a jiffy: 5 Ingredient Eggnog Cranberry Scones via @TspCurry Click To Tweet
