Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups all-purpose flour (plus a little for dusting) $0.26
  • 1 tsp salt $0.05
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar $0.02
  • 4 tsp baking powder $0.16
  • 1 pint heavy cream* $1.69
  • 6 slices cheese $1.03
  • 12 slices deli ham $1.59

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Stir until they are very well combined.
  • Pour the heavy cream into the bowl and stir until all of the flour is moistened and a thick ball of dough forms.
  • Scrape the biscuit dough out of the bowl onto a well floured surface and press it down into a rough rectangle. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a rectangle about 8x11 inches and about 1/2-inch thick. Cut the rectangle into 12 pieces.
  • Stack one slice of cheese and two slices of ham onto 6 of the biscuit squares, then top with the remaining 6 biscuit squares. Place the Ham and Cheese Biscuits onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and transfer to the preheated oven.
  • Bake the Ham and Cheese Biscuits for about 25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown on top. Serve hot.

Notes

*Only heavy cream (35-38% butterfat) can be used for this recipe. Whole milk or half and half will not produce the same results.
