Cinnamon Sugar Scones

I love to bake at night once the kids are in bed. I made this last night and accidentally almost ate half of it. It tasted great with a little bit of butter and cold glass of milk. However, I had a little bite the next day and realized that this is enjoyed the most while its still warm!- Christine

Cinnamon Sugar Scones

4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon  of salt
6 Tbs softened butter
1 Tbs. poppy seeds (optional)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 egg lightly beaten
2 Tbs butter, melted
cinnamon sugar mixture for the top coat

*In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in poppy seeds if desired. Combine buttermilk and egg. Add to the crumb mixture. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 5-6 times. Divide dough in half, shape in two balls. Place on a greased baking sheet. Pat into 6 inch round loafs. Take a knife and cut a cross on each loaf. Brush with melted butter and drizzle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes or until brown. Slice into wedges and serve warm.
