  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBS baking powder

  • drizzle of honey optional
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper and whisk to blend.
  • Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter or fork intil crumbly (you could also do just this stage in your food processor).
  • Add cheese, ham and scallions and toss to combine.
  • Make a well in the center of the mixture, add buttermilk and honey if using and gently stir it together with a fork or spatula until combined. Don't over-mix.
  • You can then scatter flour on your counter or parchment paper and form dough into a square and cut into biscuits with a biscuit cutter or simply scoop 2-3 TBS (or a cookie scoop) at a time and drop on your baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or lightly greased).
