To the bowl of a food processor, add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pulse to blend. Add cold butter cubes to flour mixture and pulse until texture is that of coarse meal. Mix vanilla extract with half and half. While the processor is on low, stream in liquid. Keep the processor running until dough forms a ball.
Remove dough from food processor and divide into 3 equal balls. Flatten to about 1 inch thick. Cut dough into 6 triangles and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in oven for approximately 18 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool.
To a small bowl, add powdered sugar and milk. Slice vanilla bean down the center and using the tip of a knife, scrape seeds out and place in the bowl with sugar and milk. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over scones.
