Snicker doodle scones

Snicker doodle cookies are one of my all time favorites and they are super easy to make, just like these scones! Why I had scones on my mind I have no idea, but I looked around for recipes for about a week and eventually just combined elements from about 3 different ones...mostly becuase I didn't want to have to buy much for them.

What you need
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (fresh grated is the best)
1/2 cup cold butter
1 egg separated
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup Buttermilk

1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400°

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in cold butter until crumbly. In another bowl combine egg yolk, sugar and buttermilk until well mixed add to your flour mixture until just combined. Flour your work surface and work your dough into a ball. Roll your dough out into a circle until it is about 1/2 to 1 inch thick. the thicker the circle the thicker the scones. Mine were about a 1/2 inch and I wish I had made them a little thicker.  Cut your circle into 8 even triangles, transfer to a well greased cookie sheet.

With a fork quickly whisk your egg whites until frothy. Mix your topping ingredients in a separate bowl.  Brush egg whites over the tops of the scones and then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mix.
Bake for 10-12 min.

While baking mix your glaze ingredients. Once scones are done and have cooled slightly drizzle over the tops and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee and a good book. That is if you don't have toddler running around and stealing every bite you try to take!
