TEA and Things

My mom got the idea to make apple cinnamon scones because we have our first apples coming on our trees.

She made a couple of changes and they tasted great!

Added: 1/4 cup Heath toffee bits,1/4 teaspoon salt
Also, she didn’t brush milk or sprinkle cinnamon mixture on top before baking. Instead she made a cinnamon icing:
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
Mix together until right consistency adding milk until thin enough to pour.
