My MIL hosted a Mother's Day tea for the ladies at the church she attends and served these delicious little biscuits. They can be topped with either the Blackberry Mustard, my personal favorite, or Lemon-Herb Butter. For the biscuits, she used Mary B's and you can also use thin slices of deli ham if you would like. The amount of ham I have listed is an estimate. The amount needed will depend on how much ham you want to fill the biscuits with. Recipe is from Southern Living.
- 1 (24 count) packagefrozen tea biscuits
- 8 -10 slices country ham, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup blackberry preserves
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh chives, chopped
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
