  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 4 Cups plus 1 Tablespoon of all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons of baking powder
  • 2 Teaspoons of salt
  • 3/4 Pound of cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 4 Extra-large eggs, beaten lightly
  • 1 Cup of cold heavy cream
  • 1/2 Pound of extra sharp yellow cheddar, small dice
  • 1 Cup of minced, fresh dill
  • 1 Egg beaten with 1 Tablespoon water or milk (egg wash)


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Combine 4 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the butter and mix on low speed until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.

3. Mix the eggs and heavy cream and quickly add them to the flour-and-butter mixture. Combine until just blended.

4. Toss together the cheddar, dill, and 1 tablespoon of flour and add them to the dough. Mix until they are almost incorporated.

5. Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead it for 1 minute, until the cheddar and dill are well distributed.

6. Roll the dough 3/4-inch thick. Cut into 4-inch squares and then in half diagonally to make triangles.

7. Brush the tops with egg wash. Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 20 to 25 minutes, until the outside is crusty and the inside is fully baked.
