Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Stir in ham. Add whipping cream, stirring with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Transfer dough to a lightly greased baking sheet. Pat into a 7" circle. Cut into 10 wedges. (Do not separate wedges.)
Bake at 425° for 24 to 26 minutes or until scones are golden. Let cool slightly. Separate wedges; serve warm with Maple Butter.
Note: Don't be tempted to add more flour to the scone recipe. Scone dough should be a bit sticky.
