I am apparently addicted to cookbooks, and Once Upon a Tart is one of the latest additions to my collection. This charming book sat sadly neglected on my overflowing shelf until I decided I wanted some inspiration for yet another scone recipe. I highly recommend this book, that includes lots of ideas for quick breads, sweet and savory tarts, condiments, unique sandwiches and also some fabulous soup and salad recipes. Informative, inspirational and enjoyable. If I ever make it to New York, I will be enlisting Frank and Jerome's services!
I've made these biscuits twice now, and I highly recommend you use fresh dill, extra old Cheddar cheese, fresh grated Parmesan cheese, and a good dose of cayenne pepper for optimal flavor. If you don't have a food processor, cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or with a knife and fork.
