This is a neat recipe for young cooks just starting out. Not too many steps and not too difficult. My dear friend has a 10 yr. old son, who's passion is to become a chef. I have him over, he picks a recipe, and I help him. By the way, the recipe's good also!
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup fresh blueberries
- Combine flour, salt and baking powder.
- Work in the butter with a fork, or a pastry blender.
- Add milk, stirring just to moisten.
- Carefully fold in the blueberries.
- Drop by tablespoon onto greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 375° for 12 to 14 minutes or until
- lightly browned.
Good simple biscuits, I added a little sugar and made half with blueberries and half without. I would also say the yield is off, I made a double batch and average size biscuits (at least in my opinion) and only got 14.
So easy, my 7-year-old did most of it by herself. We modified it slightly using gluten-free flour and a bit of honey and had good results. We will be using this recipe again! Thanks!
The biscuits had a good texture but I might try rolling them next time. The blueberries didn't really seem to belong maybe a little sugar would be good. I halved the recipe and only got 2 very large biscuits so I can't imagine getting 12 unless they were tiny.
