Egg Wash Substitute?

Does anyone know of a trick to get raw sugar to stick to the top of baked goods (i.e. scones, cookies, etc.) without using an egg wash?

This may seem crazy but I've got exactly 1 egg in my house, the recipe calls for 1 egg plus an extra for the egg wash. It's a frigid storm outside and venturing out for a lone egg seems slightly insane. Would a mixture of cream and water work?

Any thoughts?
