  2. Whisk together the half-and-half, egg and vanilla bean paste.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the cubes of butter and use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add the half-and-half mixture to the flour mixture and mix in until a soft dough forms.
  5. Roll out on a lightly floured surface into a 9×13 rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Cut into 4-5 inch long rectangles, the cut each rectangle on the diagonal, creating a triangle.
  7. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until just golden brown.
  8. Let cool while you prepare the glaze.

For the Glaze:

  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar, half-and-half and vanilla bean paste into a thick glaze.
