  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chilled unsalted butter

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, mustard and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in the center of the bowl and stir in milk and dill. Stir until moist dough forms. Add 2 cups cheese. Turn dough out onto floured surface and mix to distribute cheese. Roll out dough into a ½ inch thick square. Cut out biscuits. Roll out remaining scraps and cut out the rest of the biscuits.
