Cream Biscuits with Dill
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons minced fresh dill
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, plus additional for brushing biscuits
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Into a bowl, sift together the flour, the baking powder, and the salt. Add the dill and 1 1/4 cups of the cream. Stir the mixture until it forms dough. Gather into a ball. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough gently about 6 times and pat it out 1/2 inch thick. Cut out as many biscuits with a cutter dipped in flour and invert the rounds onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat as necessary. Brush with cream and arrange on cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until slightly brown, about 10 minutes.
