Add country ham and honey to paste and combine. Gradually draw flour into paste and incorporate into mixture, kneading lightly.
Scoop out onto well floured board. Add more flour if mixture is too sticky or wet. Knead several times then pat out to 1” thickness. Cut with 2 ¼ inch biscuit cutter and place on ungreased baking sheet.
