Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly 10 times. Pat into 1/2-inch rectangle and cut into triangles with sharp knife. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops of triangles with remaining beaten egg. Bake 10-12 mins, til golden brown. Remove scones from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.

As scones cool, mix all glaze ingredients til well blended and smooth. Dip top of each scone in glaze, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Place each scone back on cookie sheet til glaze is set. Any leftover glaze can be drizzled back onto the scones. You can make swirls to add a nice touch.
