Ham and cheddar scone (makes 8 big scones)
same as above with these changes....
buttermilk instead of heavy cream
add 2/3 cups corn meal with the 2 cups of flour
1 cup of shredded cheese if you get it out of a bag instead of shredding it our self you might need to use a tad less. I used a rich Wisconsin sharp cheddar and shredded my self. 
1cup of ham if its salty country ham you might want to leave out the salt it can become to much especially if your butter is salted to.
