  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine the flour, cheese, parsley, dill, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Use a pastry blender to cut in the cold butter or margarine until crumbly.
  4. Add eggs and half-n-half and stir lightly until just moistened.
  5. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  6. Knead dough gently until smooth, about 1 minute.
  7. Divide the dough in half and roll each half into an 8-inch circle.
  8. Cut each circle into 8 wedges, as if cutting a pie.
  9. Place the wedges 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
  10. Cool on a rack for 2 minutes before serving.

MMMMM. Jen, these are TDF! Really buttery, but oh, so delicious! Made for St. Patrick's Day 2008.

I have used this same recipe from the Land O Lakes Cookbook. I used 2 tsp. dried dill weed instead of the fresh but I am sure the fresh would be lovely. It really is a very good recipe and well worth trying! So glad you posted it.
