A friend of mine shared this recipe for Blueberry Biscuits on their Facebook page the other day. They looked so inviting, I just had to try making them. See…I am not much of a baker…baking is just too exact for me. I gave it a whirl anyway…and they were amazing. I only changed two things from the original recipe from Travis Bourgue. Click here! He shared his recipe on a Facebook group! I added a bit more blueberries and used a self-rising biscuit flour instead of all-purpose. Think biscuit meets muffin…you are going to love this recipe. Not only are they delicious, but super easy to prepare!
There are a few things you want to keep in mind while you are making this recipe. The milk needs to be super cold. You should use frozen butter. You want to work quickly…one reason there are not a lot of photos of the process. If your butter warms up, you may have to stick the dough in the freezer for 5 or 10 minutes. So, have the oven warmed up to 450 degrees, and have your baking sheet ready. I just lined a baking sheet with parchment paper. This recipe made 8 nice sized biscuits. If you want them bigger, use a wider biscuit cutter. Click here for the biscuit cutter I used. I used the second largest size.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour (I used self-rising biscuit flour), salt, sugar, and baking powder.
Add the cold milk into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Take the butter and add in tiny chunks to the dough. Spread the butter in evenly. Fold the dough and knead around the butter. Gently fold in the blueberries. Place dough on a floured surface and pat down to about 1/2″ thickness. Flour biscuit cutter and cut dough. You should get 6 to 8 biscuits depending on the size of your cutter. Place biscuits on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake anywhere from 7 to 12 minutes. Mine were done in about 10. In the last minute of baking, I brushed the biscuits with the melted butter and placed back in the oven just to brown up a touch more. While the biscuits are baking, prepare the glaze. Place the powdered sugar, water, lemon juice and vanilla in a bowl and mix with a fork until a nice glaze forms.
Remove biscuits from oven. Glaze each biscuit by drizzling the glaze with a fork. Serve these Blueberry Biscuits alone, or with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and more fresh blueberries! ENJOY!
