Let's get Cooking...
Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add one egg at a time and mix. Then add buttermilk and apple butter. Mix well. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet, and mix just until combined.
Pour mixture onto a floured surface. Use your hands or a roller to form a disk. Cut into slices, like triangles, and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Brush the tops with buttermilk and sprinkle cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crusty and golden brown. Meanwhile, make the glaze by combining all ingredients in a bowl.
Remove scones from oven and place on a wire rack. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, before adding the glaze on top.
