Ham and Cheese Scones

I found this Associated Press recipe in my local newspaper. You can make it in advance and cook it when you want to eat it. My wife thought it reminded her of quiche (although it has no eggs). I think it is good enough to order in a restaurant (which is the goal of recipes on this blog).
