    1. my husband doesn’t like eggnog AT ALL but love these scones and eggnog cupcakes go figure ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. These sound very yummy but like another poster.. I have never heard of, nor seen, eggnog extract. Can a bit of rum or bourbon be subtituted? I can almost guarantee that my NEPA stores do NOT carry eggnog extract.
