Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Set the ham with the flat side down in a large roasting pan. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cornstarch, mustard, cinnamon and Scotch. Brush some of the mixture onto the ham, reserve the rest for basting.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven, basting every 20 minutes, for 2 hours. Remove from the oven and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand for 15 minutes before removing the foil and serving. This ham is delicious served warm, at room temperature or even cold.

BEST HAM I'VE EVER HAD!!!! The Scotch glaze is YUMMY! Instead of a spiral ham, my husband scored a 7-lb smoked ham and cooked for 1.5 hours, instead of 2. He adjusted the recipe to 14 servings. I'd make ham this way EVERY time, it was THAT good!

Wow! Easy & delicious.... My cooked spiral ham only called for 1 hour of baking, so I followed its cooking instructions. This cinnamon and scotch added a great flavor...minus the cloying sweetness of some ham glazes. And the next day leftovers...yum! This recipe goes into the binder of our favorite holiday feasts.

The BEST ham ever, my kids gave me a standing ovation.... Since I "accidently" drank all the whiskey the night before, I substituted apple cider, DELISH!!!
