Alright y’all, I have your Christmas morning sweet treat RIGHT HERE! I don’t know about you, but for me breakfast on Christmas morning is almost more important than the actual dinner. Growing up we would only ever have “the works” for breakfast on holiday mornings – eggs, breakfast meats, cinnamon rolls, fruit, milk, juice, coffee. It was such a treat to have such a big breakfast on a special day, and to this day the breakfast is always on my mind as Christmas approaches!
These scones are so silly easy, and the pecans are really the star of the show. You’ll want to make sure you pre-toast them to get the full flavor; to do this, just put the pecans in a cold pan and gently heat over medium low heat for about 10 minutes or so. Your nose will know, but make sure you pay attention! As soon as they’re lightly toasted then pour them from the pan onto a cold plate to stop the cooking. Then just add ’em in according to the recipe!
