Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large bowl whisk first 4 ingredients (flour - sugar) to blend. Add shortening. Using your fingertips, rub in shortening until a very coarse meal forms. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, tossing with a fork until dough holds together.

Step 3

Turn dough out onto a floured board, pat out to 1/4 inch thick rectangle (it will be about 15 x 10 inches).

Step 4

Arrange frozen butter slices in single layer over top two-thirds of the dough. Fold bottom third of dough over the center; fold top third of dough over the center. Pat dough out to 3/4 inch thick rectangle.

Step 5

Using a 2 1/2 inch round cutter and pressing straight down - cut out biscuits.

Step 6

Transfer biscuits to an ungreased baking sheet.

Step 7

Gather dough and press again to 3/4 inch thickness and cut out more biscuits (you need 12 biscuits in all). Transfer all the biscuits to the baking sheet and brush with buttermilk.

Step 8

Bake biscuits for 20-25 minutes or until biscuits are golden and done. Cool biscuits for 15 minutes before continuing.

Step 9

Preheat broiler.

Step 10

Using a serrated knife, cut each biscuit in half horizontally; spread room temperature butter over cut sides of biscuits. Broil until butter melts and biscuits brown on the edges (1-2 minutes). Transfer to work surface; keep broiler on.

Step 11

Spread bottom halves of the biscuits with the jam; top with a folded slice of the ham, then 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and ham is heated through (1 minute or so). Cover with biscuit tops.
