Speedy Ham and Cheese Hot Pockets

We love our sandwiches here, but it's always nice to switch it up a bit sometimes. These Speedy Ham and Cheese Hot Pockets have a wonderful, tender biscuit crust and are packed full of ham and gooey melted cheese. With the biscuit crust, there is no need to wait for the dough to rise, so they are quick to make up. I have to say, I LOVED these!

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup cold butter
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups sliced ham, diced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and oil a baking sheet. Combine dry ingredients. Slice the cold butter into the flour mixture. Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour mixture until you have a coarse, grainy mixture. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the buttermilk into the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened and knead a few times to make a smooth dough. Roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick (just a little less). Cut out 4 inch circles (I used a large glass). Place about 3 tablespoon of meat and 3 tablespoons of cheese on the center of a circle. Lay another circle over the top and pinch the sides together. Just before sealing the entire circle, finish putting filling inside if it wouldn't all fit before. Place the pocket on the prepared sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the pockets begin to brown.
