Cook:

15 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2
Sift 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.
3
Melt 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.
4
Form biscuits with hands and place in skillet, flipping once to coat both sides with melted butter.
5
Put in oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
6
GLAZE: Mix all ingredient, spread over hot out of the oven biscuits. Enjoy
