In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, ginger, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, combine the molasses, milk and egg yolk until smooth; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface; kneed gently 6-8 times. Pat into an 8 inch circle; cut in 12 wedges and place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Beat egg white until frothy; brush over scones. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm
