5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces (aim for pea-sized pieces of butter)
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup chopped ham, Canadian bacon, or even sausage
1/2 cup all-purpose flour for coating hands and surface
Preheat oven to 450° F.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in cold butter until well coated in dry ingredients. You want to have small chunks of butter in your biscuit dough.
Gently stir in ham, cheese, and Shamrock Farms Cottage Cheese. Mix until just starting to combine.
Coat your hands with flour, and work the biscuit dough together by hand by folding it on itself repeatedly until all ingredients are in one fairly cohesive ball of dough. It will still be sticky and rough; that is fine.
Turn dough onto a flat surface that has been coated with flour. Fold dough over onto itself a few more times, then gently roll dough to about 3/4″ thick. Using a circle cutter, gently cut 12 round biscuits.
Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly, then serve warm.
Store any leftover biscuits covered, in the refrigerator.
