Perfect Biscuits for Country Ham


Non-stick cooking spray

2 cups Martha White Self-Rising Flour

1/3 stick baking sticks all-vegetable shortening

1/3 cup all-vegetable shortening

3/4 cup buttermilk, plus 2 tablespoons

2 tablespoons butter, melted

Thinly sliced cooked country ham


Heat oven to 450°F. Spray a large cookie sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Place flour in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture is the consistency of small peas. Add milk; stir with a fork until a soft, moist dough forms.

Knead dough gently on a well-floured surface until smooth. Roll out the dough to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut with a floured 2-inch round cutter. Place on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Brush hot biscuits with melted butter. Fill split biscuits with ham slices.

Recipe Tip: For biscuits that will pull apart easily, roll the dough to form a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle. Fold the dough in half crosswise; roll to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut and bake as directed above.
