Spiral-Sliced Ham is ideal for holiday party shortcuts! As it’s already fully cooked, it takes a few minutes from being ready to be served as a main dish or turned into delicious appetizers.
Ingredients (for 16 servings)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 1/2 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/4 pound thinly sliced ham
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Sift flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Add butter and use your fingertips or a pastry cutter to work the butter into the flour until no pieces larger than peas remain. Stir in chives and buttermilk, stirring just until mixed.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, gather it into a ball and knead once or twice, just until it holds together. Press down on dough until it is about 1/3-inch thick. Cut little biscuits out with around 1 1/2-inch cutter. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Press scraps together and cut out more biscuits. Brush tops of biscuits with milk and bake until biscuits are golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
While biscuits are still warm, split them and fill with ham.
