Cook:

Method:
Bake

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
3 tsp
baking powder
1 c
buttermilk
1 stick
(1/2 cup) butter, frozen
3 to 6 oz
frozen blueberries

GLAZE

1 c
powdered sugar
3 Tbsp
heavy cream (can use milk or water)
1 tsp
lemon zest, grated
1/2 tsp
lemon juice, fresh

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2Sift all dry ingredients in a bowl; add buttermilk. Grate 5 tablespoons of the frozen butter and add to mixture. Mix and knead until dough is formed. If too sticky add a little flour at a time until consistency you want. Gently fold in blueberries. NOTE: I fold in berries while dough is still pretty sticky. Also I use 6 ounces of blueberries. Biscuit are pretty moist. If you like a dyer biscuit, use less berries.

3Melt remaining 3 Tblsp of butter in large iron skillet on top of stove over medium heat. NOTE: this gives the biscuits a nice crunch to the bottoms of the biscuit. You can use pan of your choice and melt butter in oven while mixing up biscuits. NOTE: you don't have to add butter to pan, I just like em better this way.

4Form biscuits with hands and place in skillet, flipping once to coat both sides with melted butter.

5Put in oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

6GLAZE: Mix all ingredient, spread over hot out of the oven biscuits. Enjoy
