Hi guys! Sara, here -Tiffany’s sister!

Today, I wanted to share one of our favorite dessert recipes! Almost every dessert I make is at least 90% chocolate: homemade biscuits, brownies, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, or just a straight chocolate bar. So the fact that this one made the favorites list says a lot!

It’s a blueberry biscuit with a lemon glaze that makes me feel fancy when I make it and makes my taste buds dance when I eat it! It’s a great one to bring over to dinner parties or to eat them all yourself as you binge-watch Stranger Things.

There are two key components to this delicious dessert: the blueberries and the glaze. You can use either dried blueberries or fresh blueberries, and either one will give you a great taste! I choose to use dried blueberries because the taste is a little stronger, and they’re a little sweeter, and I love that.

If you decide to use dried blueberries as well, you might want to cut the sugar just a touch to make sure your biscuits aren’t too sweet.

If blueberries are your favorite, then you should also definitely try out these Blueberry Pie Bars.

And the glaze! This recipe originally called for half the lemon in the glaze, but I love lemon and I used the full amount listed here. You are more than welcome to adjust it for your family’s tastes! Just start with a little and keep adding until you love it!

If you love lemons like I do, try out this recipe for lemon poppy seed cookies.

Blueberry Biscuits

These biscuits make a delicious side or dessert for dinner with this Creamy Chicken Limone recipe.

Here are the ingredients you need to make blueberry biscuits:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp butter (cold!)
  • 1 cup blueberries (dried or fresh)
  • 1 cup buttermilk

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients- flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Cut the cold butter into small cubes and insert them into the dry ingredients.

Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the unsalted butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse biscuit dough crumbs. This step creates a flaky texture in the biscuits.

Add 1 cup (0.24 l) of sweet blueberries to the mixture. If using fresh or frozen blueberries here, gently fold them in; if using dried blueberries, ensure they are evenly distributed. This addition of frozen or fresh blueberries, adds bursts of sweet, fruity flavor to the sweet biscuits.

Gradually add 1 cup (0.24 l) of buttermilk to the flour mixture, stirring until the dough just comes together. Be careful not to overmix; a slightly sticky and shaggy dough is ideal.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat it into a rectangle or circle about 1 inch (2.54 cm) per inch thick each. Using a floured biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass, cut out biscuits and place them on the middle rack of the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small gap between each two cut biscuits.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent the biscuits from sticking.

Bake at 450 for 13 minutes, or until the hot biscuits are golden brown on top. Keep an eye on them to avoid over-baking. Mix the glaze while the blueberry biscuits are baking. Brush onto hot biscuits when they come out of the oven. These sweet blueberry biscuits are best enjoyed warm, and you can serve them as is or with a dollop of butter or a drizzle of honey.

Enjoy the delightful combination of flaky, buttery biscuits with bursts of sweet, juicy blueberries throughout. They make for a perfect breakfast treat or a delicious addition to any meal, and they taste delicious with a cool glass of Fruit Punch Lemonade!


Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a mixing bowl, combine the following ingredients.

Whisk the ingredients together until you achieve a smooth consistency.

Ensure that there are no lumps in the flour powdered sugar mixture or the glaze. If needed, you can adjust the thickness by adding more powdered sugar or adjusting the liquid ingredients.

While the biscuit cut dough is baking in the oven, prepare the lemon glaze. The goal is to have a large bowl of the glaze ready just as the biscuits come out of the oven, so it’s warm and can be brushed onto the flat surface of the hot biscuits.

Once the biscuits are golden brown and hot out of the oven, use a pastry brush or a spoon to generously brush the lemon glaze over the tops of each biscuit. The heat from the warm biscuits, will help the glaze soak in and create a deliciously sweet and tangy coating on biscuits.

Let the glazed drop biscuits cool completely for a few minutes to allow the glaze to set slightly. This will give the biscuits a shiny finish and enhance the lemon flavor of drop biscuits.

Serve the lemon-glazed blueberry biscuits made with melted butter warm. The combination of melted butter, the flaky blueberry biscuits, and the zesty lemon glaze creates a delightful contrast of flavors that is sure to be great and delicious to serve warm too.
