Sweet Blueberry Biscuits

There’s something magical about the simple things in life, like waking up to the aroma of freshly baked biscuits. But not just any biscuits—imagine ones bursting with the sweet tang of blueberries, a true delight for the senses. This is the story of how the Sweet Blueberry Biscuits came to be a staple in our home.

During a quaint getaway with my husband, before the whirlwind of parenthood took over, we stumbled upon these heavenly treats at a bed and breakfast. Fast forward to our move back to Utah from North Carolina, and the cravings hit hard. With no Bojangles in sight to satisfy my longing for those blueberry biscuits, I decided to don my apron and bring the magic into my own kitchen. With a basket of fresh blueberries in hand and a sprinkle of hope, I set out to recreate that melt-in-your-mouth goodness.


For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Milk, cold
  • ⅓ cup Sugar
  • 5 tablespoons of Butter (cold or frozen)
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 ounces Blueberries, fresh or dried

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • ⅛ cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon Juice

How to Make Sweet Blueberry Biscuits

  1. Preheat and Prep: Begin by preheating your oven to a hot 450°F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder to combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Mix in the Magic: Gently fold in the cold milk and blueberries into the dry mix. The cold is crucial here—it’s what makes the biscuits so tender and flaky.
  3. Butter Up: Before you even think about starting, remember to place a stick of butter in your freezer for about an hour. Once it’s sufficiently frozen, take it out and grate or break it into tiny chunks. Sprinkle these frozen butter bits all over your biscuit dough, and gently fold and knead to distribute evenly. This is the secret to those irresistibly flaky layers.
  4. Roll and Cut: On a lightly floured surface, roll out your dough to about 1/4 to 1/8 inch thickness. With a biscuit cutter, stamp out your biscuits. You should get about six delightful rounds ready for baking.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven. They’ll need about 7 to 12 minutes, or just until they’re beautifully golden and your kitchen smells like a dream.
  6. Glaze with Love: While the biscuits are hot, brush them with a little melted butter for an extra touch of richness. Then, whisk together the powdered sugar, water, vanilla extract, and lemon juice to create a smooth glaze. Drizzle this over the warm biscuits, allowing the glaze to seep into every nook and cranny.

With each bite, these Sweet Blueberry Biscuits take you back to simple, joyous moments. Whether it’s a lazy Sunday morning or a special brunch with loved ones, they’re sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. Enjoy the burst of blueberry in each bite, enveloped in soft, buttery biscuit goodness, all topped off with a sweet, tangy glaze that ties everything together. Here’s to creating memories, one biscuit at a time.
