  5. Divide dough in half, place half on a silipat mat or parchment and pat into a 7 inch circle, slightly less than one inch thick
  6. Cut into 8 wedges using a pizza cutter (like slicing a pie). Slightly separate the wedges to give them room to rise as they bake

  8. When scones come out of the oven whip together powdered sugar and remaining milk and vanilla
  9. Lightly frost the slightly cooled scones, if you frost when they come out of the oven the frosting will melt
