Ham and Smoked Gouda Biscuits

1 C. ham steak, diced

2 1/4 C. flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

3/4 tsp. baking soda

6 T. cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 1/2 C. smoked Gouda, coarsely shredded (about 4 1/2 oz.)

1/4 C. chives, chopped

1 1/4 C. plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 450°. Butter a large baking sheet. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to add the butter, working the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in the ham, cheese and chives. Add the yogurt, stirring until just combined.

Drop the dough onto baking sheet in 12 mounds, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
