Sometimes I imagine I have an adorable little hole in the wall cozy café. The kind where the coffee is always fresh and hot, and the smells of butter, pie, and bacon sizzling on the griddle are always in the air. My imaginary café is now serving these biscuits. They are wonderfully tender, flavorful buttermilk biscuits, and so deliciously easy to whip up! They are also incredibly versatile. You can use pretty much any type of cheese you'd like in these - since the cheese offers the main flavor, if you have a bunch of something else besides pepper jack you'd like to use up, feel free to change it up however you'd like.

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and garlic powder. Whisk to combine.
- Dice the cold butter up into chunks, and cut it into the dry mixture with your fingers, a fork, or a pastry cutter - until the mixture resembles coarse sand, and butter is well blended in.
- Stir in the cheese and ham, gently stirring to evenly coat all the cheese and ham pieces in the flour mixture.
- Use a fork and stir in 1 cup of the buttermilk. If the mixture is still dry, add a little more liquid at a time until the dough just comes together (it should be a little bit sticky, but not "wet").
- Form a ball by hand, handling the dough gently. Then pat the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thickness. Use a small biscuit cutter to cut 12-15 biscuits out, and arrange them on a baking sheet with sides just barely touching.
- Bake in the pre-heated oven 12-15 minutes, until just golden brown around the edges / tops / bottom. Cool briefly on pan before moving to a platter or cooling rack.
- Best served warm!
