Test Kitchen Tip
You can bake the biscuits up to two days before serving or freeze them for up to a month stored in an airtight container.
For the Pineapple Mustard, combine preserves, Dijon, honey, and pepper flakes. Chill mustard until ready to serve.
Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until pieces are pea-sized.
Stir in buttermilk, Cheddar, and chives until a dough forms; gently knead on a floured surface just until dough holds together. Pat dough into a ½-inch-thick round. Cut biscuits with a floured 1¾-inch round cutter; arrange on prepared baking sheet.
Serve biscuits with ham and Pineapple Mustard.
To avoid tough biscuits from overworking the dough, stir to combine just until dough holds together.
Cut straight down into dough; don’t twist the cutter or the biscuits won’t rise. Scraps may be rerolled once.
