  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 3⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
  5. 1⁄4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  6. 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  7. 1⁄2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  8. 2⁄3 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  9. 1⁄4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  10. 1 cup whole buttermilk, divided
  11. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  12. Stone-ground mustard and ham, to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, black pepper, and red pepper. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly. Add cheeses and 3⁄4 cup buttermilk, stirring until a thick dough forms. Add remaining 1⁄4 cup buttermilk, if needed.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, gently knead dough 4 or 5 times. Roll or pat dough into an 8-inch square; cut into 25 pieces. Place dough pieces close together in a 10-inch square cast-iron skillet.
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 17 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  5. Using a large spatula, remove from pan and cut into pieces. Brush with melted butter. Serve with mustard and ham.
