Blueberry Biscuits with Lemon Glaze

This recipe for blueberry biscuits with a lemon glaze makes for a delicious treat in the summer, or any time of year! Lush, ripe blueberries (or use dried!) in a flaky buttermilk biscuit with a sweet lemon glaze on the top make for a perfect mouth-watering appetizer.

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. Brownies, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, or just 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 just 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 personally love that.

If you choose 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.

And the glaze! This recipe originally called for half the lemon in the glaze, but I loooooove 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!
