Biscuit Calzone

Inspirations for this dish included biscuits, empanadas, calzones, and even Hot Pockets!

I basically made a huge ham and cheese calzone with home made biscuit dough.



Preheat your oven to 375.  Chop up some nice deli ham and shred some sharp cheddar cheese.

Biscuit Dough

Use your food processor and add in 2.5 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp. baking powder, and a pinch of salt and sugar.  Pulse to combine.  Add in one cold stick of butter (cut it into smaller squares before adding it in).  Add one cup of buttermilk and a handful of parmesan cheese.  Mix until a wet dough forms.

Drop the dough onto a floured surface and form into a ball.  Don’t knead this too much as you don’t want all the butter to melt.  Roll the dough out into a large circle.

Place the dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Place the ham and cheese across half of the dough.  Flip the other half of the dough over top and use a fork to seal the edges.  Brush the top of the dough with heavy cream or egg wash to get a golden brown seal.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Slice and serve.
