Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C.


Combine 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt in the bowl of an food processor.  Add the butter and mix on low speed until the butter is in pea-sized pieces. Mix the eggs and heavy cream and quickly add them to the flour-and-butter mixture. Combine until just blended. Toss together the Cheddar, dill, with 1 tablespoon of flour and add them to the dough. Mix until they are almost mixed.


Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead it for 1 minute, until the Cheddar and dill are well distributed. Roll the dough 3/4-inch thick. Cut into 3-inch circles.  Brush the tops with egg wash. Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 20 to 25 minutes, until the outside is crusty and the inside is fully baked.
