Cinnamon Sugar Scones

These little scones are amazing!!! They came with rave reviews in a recipe exchange group I'm in on facebook and I knew I had to try them.  I made them on Saturday morning and they were the perfect delicious breakfast treat. Recipe from Money Saving Mom.

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg, separated
3 tbsp honey
1/3 cup buttermilk

Cinnamon Mixture:
1-2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
1-3 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 400. In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Cut the butter in using a fork or pastry blender. In a small bowl combine the egg yolk, honey and butter milk. Add to the dry ingredients until just combined.  Pat into a circle about 1/2 inch thick and cut into 8 pieces.  Combine the cinnamon and sugar for the topping.  Brush the scones with the egg white and sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  While the scones are baking mix together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Remove the scones from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before glazing and serving.
