  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 stick butter or margarine cut in pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups ham cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or can use cheese of your choice. I use several different cheeses blended sometimes
  • 1 1/4 cups evaporated milk


  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder with a whisk. Cut the butter pieces into the flour mixture until looks like coarse crumbs. Add ham, cheese and milk. Mix with spoon and turn out onto floured board. I don’t roll this out. I just pat the dough out with my hands to desired thickness. I used a small cookie cutter, too, instead of a regular biscuit cutter.
  • Baked on a sprayed cookie sheet in a preheated 425 degree oven until brown on top or 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve with honey, preserves, molasses, etc
