Scones. Not my favorite of breakfast breads — English Muffins, holla!! But, ok, if you add some cranberries, a little orange, a little egg nog (a little because, let’s be fair, in my world it’s mostly brandy), ok, maybe I’m in. And other people seem to like them – I mean, they sell them at Starbucks, you know somebody’s eating them.
Today’s recipe is brought to you by The Love Nerds, specifically Maggie of the The Love Nerds (there are two of them, one of them is her husband). If you haven’t guessed, it’s scones. Specifically, Cranberry & Orange Egg Nog Scones.
I bet you a million dollars my sister-in-law will ask me to make these for Christmas. And I probably will. If I do, I’ll update you, but in the meantime, let’s all thank Maggie for this scrumptious scone recipe!
