How to cut cold butter into flour:
Cut the butter into the dry ingredients. I like to use a pastry blender to get the butter chopped into fine pieces. Some people will use knives, but this takes a very long time. You can also use a food processor.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Place the dough between two pieces of wax paper and roll into a circle shape.
Cut the dough before you bake it. Bake at 350 degrees and you are only 20 minutes away from eating :-).

You can definitely use a scone pan with this gluten free eggnog scones recipe. Depending on the size of your scone pan, you may have to adjust the baking time.
Can you use dairy-free eggnog in this recipe?
You can definitely use dairy-free eggnog in this recipe. I have used the brands So Delicious and Califia in this recipe.
Drizzle icing, or enjoy them plain.
