Sharp cheddar and dill are a perfect combination in these tender, flaky biscuits!
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add butter and, using your hands or a pastry cutter, mix and break down until the mixture is coarse and crumbly. Add cheddar and dill and toss to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk and 1 egg until combined. Add it to the flour mixture. Mix until barely combined.
Lightly knead the dough until it forms into one solid mass. Sprinkle a work surface with flour and place dough onto it. Press the dough into a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out the biscuits using a biscuit cutter (or cut into squares using a knife). Recombine scraps, press them into a 1/2 inch thickness and cut it to get more biscuits. Recipe should yield 8 biscuits total (you might have a little more or less if you used a knife).
Transfer biscuits to the prepared baking sheet. Combine the egg and water in a small bowl to make an egg wash. Brush each biscuit with egg wash and top with a few turns of freshly ground pepper.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Like most things, these are best served warm. Enjoy!
