These are awesome little wonders of the culinary world. I love them! They're the perfect savory early morning treat. You could even change it up and have these as a bread course for a meal or split them in half and make a petite sandwich out of them.This recipe is essentially a scone recipe but fancy biscuits sounds better..just sayin!

How To Make fancy biscuits

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

    Dump your 2 cups of flour in a bowl and add your cubed butter to it. Set your mixer who is on the slowest speed and let them combine until the flour looks course
  • 3
    Then add your eggs one at a time
  • 4
    Then add your cream
  • 5
    When you cube your cheese lightly coat them in flour (this will help them not to go straight to the bottom of the dough
  • 6
    Fold the fresh dill and sharp cheddar into your batter

    After the dill and cheddar are incorporated pour some flour out on a flat surface and pour your dough on top of the flour. Kneed the flour until the dough just comes together. Take a rolling pin and roll them into a square shape. Cut the scones on the diagonal to make eight triangle shaped scones

    Then sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of each of the scones. Place them in the oven for 12-15 minutes. They should be golden brown and cheese will be oozing out!
