Homemade biscuits are spiked with fresh, sweet blueberries in this crowd-pleasing Blueberry Biscuits recipe. This recipe is perfect to replace your traditional buttermilk biscuit recipe at breakfast. Try it also as a side to your favorite salad or as a light dessert served warm with ice cream.
You’ll need :
- 6 Tbsp butter
- 3c flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 5 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1¼c buttermilk
- 1 eggs
- 1½c blueberries (don’t thaw if using frozen)
How to make it :
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and combine with a pastry blender or two forks until very crumbly. The pieces should be no larger than peas. (Alternately, you can combine the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the pieces are no larger than peas.)
*If desired, you can prepare the dough up to this point and refrigerate up to 1 day until ready to continue.
Combine egg and buttermilk and pour into dry mixture. Add blueberries, and gently stir with a fork until just combined. Flour the countertop and turn dough onto the counter.
Pat out to a square, about ¾″ in thickness. Being careful not to slice all the way through, slice large square into 16 smaller squares, keeping the dough in one large piece. Carefully transfer scored biscuits to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (this is easier with a spatula or a bench scraper).
Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes.
