I love seasonal cooking. Certain flavors just escort us into a holiday season beautifully. Eggnog accompanied by cinnamon and nutmeg are tastes that just scream Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have, in the past, revealed my favorite way to prepare eggnog and also given you these amazing eggnog sandwich cookies. Today I get to introduce you to an addicting breakfast Nog Cinnamon Chip Scones Recipe that will help you turn your morning into one more way to celebrate holiday flavors.
International Delights is introducing their seasonal line that includes nog and hot chocolate. I used the International Delight Nog – Very Vanilla to create this scone recipe. You can visit the International Delights website to catch the spirit of the season with more recipes and ideas.

I always love to get my kids involved in making recipes. Cooking and baking are great lessons in not only chef-like skills, but also can be used to help teach reading, writing and measuring. Further, the kitchen is a time of bonding for a family. I would love to see pictures of your family baking these together.
As a gift, I delivered some of these scones to my neighbor. After her family consumed them, she immediately texted to ask for the recipe. She said, “You made that up?!?! Seriously these are way better then Starbucks! Wow!” I don’t share this to brag. I tell you so that you will be encouraged to add this recipe to your Christmas food arsenal. Bon Appetit.
