Virginia Ham Biscuits

12 biscuits

INGREDIENTS:

  •  2 ¼ cups self-rising flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup butter-flavored shortening (such as Crisco)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup whole-grain mustard
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces ham, sliced ¼ inch thick, from a bone-in or boneless ham


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C)
  2. Sift flour and baking soda together in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the mixture and stir in buttermilk until a soft ball forms.
  3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2-3 minutes. Roll dough out to a ½ inch thick rectangle.
  4. Cut biscuits out with biscuit cutter and transfer to a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until tops are light brown and sides begin to darken, about 10 minutes.  Remove biscuits to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. In a small bowl whisk the whole-grain mustard, honey, and Dijon mustard until smooth. When the biscuits are cool enough to handle, split and spread the bottoms with the honey mustard. Add the ham and the biscuit top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
