Ingredients

Biscuits: 
  • 2/3 cup/140 g butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups/250 g flour
Toppings:
  • Crushed dill seed

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C. 

Put the butter, sugar, salt, 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water and egg in a bowl and mix well. Add the flour and mix quickly only until it holds together. Do not overwork.
