Baked Goods & Sweet Treats Recipes

Recipes || Christmas Morning Favourites

I’m in full-speed ahead Christmas mood at the moment. I’m about halfway done with my Christmas shopping, and I have the urge to watch “Elf” nearly every day. (My Christmas favourite.) 

Today I wanted to bring you a recipe for a Christmas morning favourite. Everyone will wake up hungry but excited on the morning. I prefer not to eat anything too heavy to save myself for a massive feast later on in the afternoon. You can make these cranberry scones a few days ahead of time, pop them in the oven to warm up for a few minutes on Christmas morning and serve them with clotted cream and jam (to everyone’s delight). 

If you’re going to go the whole hog, and it’s Christmas, so why not? I’d always recommend whipping up a vat of Baileys hot chocolate to go alongside everyone’s scones. 

I broke out a Christmas jumper early this year to get me into the festive spirit whilst baking in our new home.  My jumper is from Boohoo, and they have quite the selection of other Christmas jumpers
