Cranberry Eggnog Cornbread Scones

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"This is probably one of the best scone recipes I've made. The texture is nice and the taste is excellent. They have just a hint of eggnog, so even those who aren't big fans of the drink will like them."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Stir the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl until blended. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until coarse crumbs form. Mix in the craisins. Use a fork to stir in the eggnog and make a sticky dough.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; dip hands in flour and knead the dough about 10 times. Pat the dough out into a disk about 1/2 inch thick. Dip a 2 inch diameter biscuit cutter into some flour, and cut out 8 to 10 rounds. Place rounds about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Use up remaining dough by patting it into a smaller disk and cutting again.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until risen and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Very nice. I had some eggnog that was getting over the hill and wanted to use it up. This looked like a wonderfully different and elegant recipe. I added 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg to help bring out...

These scones are pretty good. Not too sweet and the cornmeal gives a nice texture. I couldnt tell they had eggnog in them, but they made a nice addition to the egg casserole I made for breakfa...

These are delicious scones. I like the slight crunch that the cornmeal gives them. I baked it as one large round scone rather than cutting into smaller scones and just increased the baking tim...

This is a fast and delicious recipe that Hubby and I just love! Sometimes I substitute currants, sometimes use plain milk instead of egg nog, but they're always yummy!

Very easy recipe, tasted really good. The eggnog taste is subtle not in your face. The round ones looked a little to perfect thought (like inexpensive canned biscuits) , so I cut the second batc...

Yum! I made these with the listed ingredients and they were great. Instead of making round scones, I cut the patted out round into 8 wedges (personal preference for wedge shaped scones!). After ...

These were a huge hit at a brunch I hosted. I kept them warm by using a warming plate, and the next time I might take one viewers suggestion and add a few eggnog spices for that extra flavor. Th...

I halved the recipe and used corn muffin mix, rather than just cornmeal. These were simple to make (once I got past rubbing in the butter. I'm a bit of a novice at pastries.) and turned out wo...

These were fabulous! Easy to make and even BETTER to eat. Mmmmmmm....

I used maraschino cherries instead of craisins. These were easy to make. They had a great eggnog taste.
