Whisk together flour, baking powder, garlic powder, ½ tsp salt and pepper. Stir in the chives and shredded cheese. Grate the frozen butter into the flour mixture, and combine with two forks or your hands.  

Whisk together ⅔ cup buttermilk, honey and the egg yolk. Pour over the flour mixture. Add the ham, and mix until the dough clumps. Form into a circle, and cut like a pizza into 6 pieces.  

Whisk 1 Tbsp buttermilk with egg white to brush onto the scones. Then sprinkle with extra salt (optional). 

Place scones on a lined baking sheet, and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes before baking for 24 minutes at 400ºF
