Blueberry Biscuits

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.

  • 2 c. flour (both white and white-wheat work well - you can use either one)
  • 4 T. softened butter
  • 4 t. baking powder
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/4 c. blueberries - I used frozen ones that we picked last summer
  1. Measure dry ingredients and stir together.
  2. Cut in the softened butter.
  3. Add the blueberries.
  4. Add the milk all at once.
  5. Stir rapidly for a few seconds, then turn out on a lightly floured board.  
  6. Knead vigorously for 30 seconds.
  7. Pat or roll to 1/2" or 3/4" thickness.
  8. Cut out and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10  minutes or until the tops begin to brown.
  10. 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).  
  11. Drizzle the glaze over the biscuits.
  12. Serve warm.
How do you like to eat YOUR biscuits??


  1. I am pinning this! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Thank you! We just had one of the blueberry muffins from an undisclosed place not to long ago, and I melted! Would much rather make myself. Thank you for posting! I have one little bag of blueberries left from last summer, so I'll try these. BetsyD
