Brown Sugar Scones~by Kelsey

So good!  Makes eight scones, you may want to double.

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch squares (or salted butter if you reduce salt to 1/2 teaspoon)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Work in the butter with a fork or pasty blender until mixture is coarse crumbs.  In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, heavy cream, vanilla.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet.  Stir just until dough forms.  Turn dough onto floured surface and from a disc about one inch tall.  Cut into eight wedges.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes until scones begin to brown on bottom.  Remove from oven and cool about five minutes before serving.
