How To Make fresh blueberry biscuits

  • 1
    In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder and powdered sugar. Use a pastry blender or two forks to cut in the butter until it is pea size. Make a hole in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk. Work the flour and milk together with a fork to form the dough.

    Turn out onto a floured surface and pull the dough together. Press, with your hands, into a rectangle about 1/2" thick. Take the blueberries and spread evenly over the dough and use the palms of your hands to gently press them into the dough. Fold the dough in 3rd's from left to right (like a letter) then in half lengthwise. Once again, press the dough out this time to 1" thickness. Use a floured biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits and place in a well greased 10" cast iron skillet with the biscuits touching. Reusing all the extra dough, pressing and cutting.
