These gingerbread-flavored biscuits complement the smokiness of a glazed ham.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees with rack in center. Sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, ginger, cloves, and pepper. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together milk and molasses until completely combined. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and add the milk-molasses mixture.

  • Using a fork, stir the mixture until it almost comes together. Gently bring the remaining smaller dough particles together with your fingertips. Transfer dough to a very lightly floured surface, and pat into a flattened circle about 6 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick. Cut dough into rounds with a 2-inch cookie cutter. Gently press the excess dough together, and cut several more biscuits. Gently press the remaining excess dough together one more time, and cut one more biscuit.

  • Transfer biscuits to a parchment-lined baking sheet; generously brush tops with cream. Bake until golden brown, 24 to 26 minutes. Place biscuits on a wire rack to cool slightly.
