3/4 cup Fresh Blueberries
2 cups All Purpose Flour + another 1/3 cup for Rolling
1/4 cup Sugar

Step By Step Photo Tutorial for Sweet Blueberries Biscuits
To start making your easy blueberry biscuits you’ll want to pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees, while you are mixing the biscuit dough.
1. Combine the Dry Ingredients
To start you’ll want to add 2 cups of flour to a large mixing bowl. Mix flour with the sugar, baking powder, and salt. I like to use a whisk to mix, but a wooden spoon will work too.
2. Cut in the Butter
Take your stick of butter or margarine and cut the 5 tablespoons into small pieces. Add it to the flour mixture and cut into the flour with a pastry cutter, a fork, or with your hands like you would for pie crust. If you want to use a food processor this will work too.
3. Add the Blueberries
To the flour mixture, add the fresh berries and toss to coat with flour.
4. Add the Wet Ingredients
Now to the flour-blueberry mixture, add the milk and with a spatula gently stir until all the flour is moistened. Don’t over mix, if you over mix the biscuit dough, your biscuits will be tough.
Recipe Tip: if your dough is too wet or sticky. Add a little more flour. If your dough is too dry, add a bit more milk. You want a slightly sticky dough but you don’t want it too hard to handle.
5. Shape Biscuits
Once the blueberry biscuit dough has come together, transfer dough onto a floured work surface. Sprinkle the top of the dough with flour. And using your hands or a rolling pin roll the dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness.
Cut into biscuits with a biscuit cutter or a glass.
Time Saving Tip: cut the dough with a knife into squares so you don’t have little pieces to reshape. It speeds up the biscuit cutting process.
6. Bake until Golden Brown
Place the blueberry biscuits on a cookie sheet or if you prefer, a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. When the blueberries ooze as they bake they can stick to the cookie sheet so parchment paper can prevent sticking. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
7. Make the Glaze
While your biscuits are baking take the powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest if using, and the milk. Combine in a small bowl and whisk to moisten the powdered sugar. The mixture should be thin like a glaze.
Recipe Tip: If you want a thicker glaze, don’t add as much milk. If you want a thinner glaze use more milk or lemon juice.
8. Glaze Your Biscuits
Now your biscuits are done baking. Place the warm biscuits on a cooling rack inside of a cookie sheet so you can glaze them.
Drizzle the glaze on each biscuit and let the excess drip off onto the cookie sheet below. Placing the biscuits on a cooling rack keeps the biscuits from getting soggy from the extra glaze.
Once the glaze is set enjoy. If you’ll be storing your delicious glazed blueberry biscuits be sure to store them in an airtight containers so they stay fresh.
That’s how easy it is to make this lemon blueberry biscuits recipe. I hope you and your family enjoy them. They are an easy breakfast recipe but fancy enough for a brunch with company too.
