  • 2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup salted butter very cold
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese approximately 4 oz
  • 1/2 Cup fresh dill chopped
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 Cup milk

Butter Topping

  • 1/4 Cup salted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill chopped


  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F
  • In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut butter into cubes and add to the flour. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in the shredded cheese and chopped dill.
  • Add the beaten egg and milk and stir just until combined. It's ok if it feels a bit wet as we are dropping these biscuits, not rolling.
  • Drop biscuits by heaping spoonfuls (about 1/4 cup each) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with non-stick spray leaving about an inch of space between them to rise.
  • Place the biscuites into the oven for 20-22 minutes until risen and lightly golden.
  • Once you remove the biscuits from the oven mix the melted butter, granulated garlic and 2 tbsp of fresh dill in a small bowl. Brush the melted butter over the biscuits before serving.
