These were wonderful. I too used lemon since that's what I had and I think it goes better with blueberry. I added a few more berries since I wanted to use up the fresh ones I had on hand. The glaze on top really was good and so unexpected. The biscuits rose and were only slightly sweet so perfect for breakfast. Thanks for sharing!
