Christmas Challenge - Part 7

7 - Use up the eggnog.  I use the last eggnog in the carton to make Eggnog Scones.  The first time I tried doing this (over 10 years ago), I really was trying to use up the eggnog, and found a recipe on the back of the eggnog container.  They were SO GOOD that I wanted to make more, but I had thrown out the container without thinking, and the recipe with it!  After a few years of trying, I finally adapted a scones recipe to get that eggnog flavor I was looking for, and now (here comes another confession!) I actually buy the eggnog just so I can make the scones.  At least my intentions were good in the beginning!  :)
