Recently my Little Man commented about how much he would like to eat a local fast food restaurant's blueberry biscuit. This treat tastes fantastic, but is no doubt quite unhealthy, so it's not something that he's had more than a few times.
And then I wondered: why couldn't WE make blueberry biscuits?
I couldn't think of a good reason not to, and so our experimentation began.
The first batch came out beautifully, and they were all eaten before I could get a picture of them. The most recent batch is somewhat less pretty to look at, but the biscuits taste amazing.
So if you're looking to add a little variety to your biscuits, here's how! These couldn't be simpler to make, but they definitely have a higher fun factor than an ordinary biscuit.
- Measure dry ingredients and stir together.
- Cut in the softened butter.
- Add the blueberries.
- Add the milk all at once.
- Stir rapidly for a few seconds, then turn out on a lightly floured board.
- Knead vigorously for 30 seconds.
- Pat or roll to 1/2" or 3/4" thickness.
- Cut out and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the tops begin to brown.
- Mix a basic vanilla glaze with 1 c. 10X sugar, a splash of vanilla, a pinch of salt, and about 1 T. of milk (or enough to make a gravy-like consistency).
- Drizzle the glaze over the biscuits.
- Serve warm.
How do you like to eat YOUR biscuits??
