Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Thoroughly mix ingredients together with a whisk. Cut cold butter into small chunks. With an electric mixer blend butter into flour mixture creating pea-sized pieces. Whisk together eggs and cream and add the flour mixture. Combine until just blended. Toss together grated cheese, fresh dill and 1 tablespoon flour. Fold into dough and mix until blended.

Step 2

Place the dough on a well floured surface and gently kneed for 1 minute. Roll out the dough 3/4-inch thick and cut into 3-inch squares. Cut the squares in half diagonally to make triangles. Brush with beaten egg white and place on greased jelly roll pan. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

These scones have a wonderful texture and flavour! I did use only 1/2 tsp salt as the cheese took care of the rest. The next day they reheated perfectly in the oven with no change in the texture. They made a delightful dipper for the soup. Thank you Teresa for a make again recipe. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
