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.

Ingredients:

  • 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
Directions:
  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??
