Place 2 cups flour in a large mixing bowl. Add butter or margarine. With a fork or pastry blender, cut butter into flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently push the flour mixture to the edges of the bowl, making a well in the center. Pour the milk (a little at a time) into the well, and blend the milk into the flour mixture, until it forms a ball. Do not over-mix. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 10 to 12 times. On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll dough to approximately 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter, butter tops and bottoms, and place on a baking pan. Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 450 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. Place about (3) 2-inch squares of country ham in each biscuit and arrange in a nice pattern on a serving platter. Enjoy!
