Makes: 12 biscuits


  • 2 cups 500 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour 
  • 3 tsp 15 mL baking powder
  • 2 tsp 10 mL chopped fresh or dried dill
  • 3/4 tsp 4 mL salt
  • 1/3 cup 75 mL

    All-Vegetable Shortening

    Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening 
  • 1/2 cup 125 mL shredded sharp cheddar or Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 cup 175 mL milk


  1. Heat oven to 425°F (220ºC).
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, dill and salt. With a pastry blender, 2 knives, or a fork, cut in shortening until mixture looks like coarse meal. Stir in shredded cheese. Add milk. Stir just until dough holds together.
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Roll 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick. Cut dough with floured 2" (5 cm) biscuit cutter without turning biscuit cutter (push straight down). Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
