2 cups self-rising flour

1/3 cup shredded Cheddar-jack cheese blend 

3 slices thin deli ham, chopped 

3 tablespoons salted butter, slightly frozen 

1 cup buttermilk 

All-purpose flour, for dusting

Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking sheet, optional


1 stick (8 tablespoons) salted butter, softened

2 tablespoons honey 

1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard 

Blackberry or raspberry preserves, for serving


  1. For the biscuits: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the self-rising flour in a large bowl and toss with the cheese and ham. Grate the butter into the flour mixture. Pour in the buttermilk and mix gently with a wooden spoon. Once the dough comes together, turn it out onto a floured surface, divide it into 8 equal balls and pat them down lightly.
  3. Put the balls in a cast-iron pan or on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. For the butter: In a bowl, mix together the butter, honey and mustard.
  5. When the biscuits are done, brush some of the butter over the tops. Serve the biscuits with the remaining butter and the preserves.
