Flaky Dill Biscuits
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick, plus 2 tablespoons, unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups buttermilk, plus more for brushing
1/2 cup fresh dill, finely chopped
Freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the melted butter until your mixture resembles coarse meal.
2. Add the buttermilk and dill and use your hands or a spatula to move it around the bowl in a circular motion to mix it in with the flour.
3. Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it until it is about 3/4 inch to 1 inch thick. Using cookie or biscuit cutters or a jar, make the biscuits.
4. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with buttermilk and sprinkle the ground pepper on top. Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
