2 3/4

1/2
cup cold butter, cubed
1
cup chopped smoked ham
1
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
2
teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary

Cut each round into 8 wedges; place wedges 1 inch apart.
  • 3 Brush scones with remaining 2 tablespoons buttermilk. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cooling rack.
