Today’s post is the last of this years Festive Christmas Event. I so enjoyed participating and although it keeps me very busy I am rather sad its over. Today we are sharing Christmas morning recipes. You will find that other bloggers Christmas morning recipes at the end of my post.

Christmas morning is super casual at our home, it always has been but even more so now that were empty nesters. These cranberry scones are festive and light and flakey. I make them the day before and offer them with orange butter, but they are great as is.

You can also freeze the cranberry scones, defrost in the morning and warm them in the microwave.

  1. I love scones with a strong cup of coffee and these sound perfect for the holidays. Love that they are make-ahead too. Served warm though is the absolute best.

  2. Looks delicious, Leanna! In fact, I think I can taste it just by looking at the picture! Lol! That’s how tasty they look! Pinned!
