Glazed Cinnamon Scones

I'm not quite sure how I've gone my whole life without having tasted a scone.  I owe my sister-in-law big time for introducing me to these babies.  I can't believe how how amazing these are for how simple they are to throw together.  Simply pour some cream over the dry ingredients, stir a few times and knead until a soft dough forms.  Only one bowl, less than 25 minutes
from start to finish and no mixer required.  These bake up so fluffy and soft that the dough practically melts in your mouth.  These would be perfect for a Mother's Day breakfast or brunch this Sunday.  The recipe is even simple enough that you could print it off and then hand it over to the hubby and kids to prepare, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy.  And trust me you will enjoy, at least I know I did. 
 I am totally in love with these scones and can't wait to try out some other flavor combinations.  Since I am a newbie to the scone world I would love for you all to help me out and share your favorite flavor or recipe(or link) in the comments section.  I can totally see myself getting hooked on trying out all kinds of different scone recipes, so I am just warning you that you can probably expect to see some more scone variations here in the not to distant future.
Glazed Cinnamon Scones
Dough
2 Cups Flour
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 and 1/3 Cups Heavy Cream
Cinnamon Glaze
1 Cup Powder Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly grease a baking sheet.  Whisk together the dry ingredients.  Pour the cream over the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.  Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Gently knead the dough until completely combined and a soft dough forms.  Divide into two dough balls.  Roll each ball into a circle about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.  Use a pizza cutter to cut the each circle into 8 triangles.  Place the triangles on prepared baking sheet about 1-2 inches apart.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the top just begins to brown.  Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack for 2-5 minutes while you prepare the cinnamon glaze.  For the glaze combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk until combined.  Drizzle over the scones.  Allow the glaze to set up for about 5 minutes.  Serve and Enjoy while still warm. 
Yield: 16 scones
