This recipe was shared by a friend and it definitely makes more of a dessert biscuit instead of a traditional savory one, which is a nice change of pace. Good served with a cup of tea or coffee, instead of alongside a meaty meal.
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk, cold
- 5 tablespoons butter, frozen
- 3 ounces blueberries (fresh or dried)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl until well-incorporated.
- Add the cold milk & mix a bit. As dough begins to form, use a cheese grater to grate the butter into the dough evenly. Fold dough as you grate so the butter spreads evenly throughout. When done with the butter, fold in the blueberries.
- Gently pull off chunks of dough and pat to form 10 biscuits of roughly the same size. Place on ungreased cookie sheet or cake pan. Bake in oven for about 7-12 minutes, or until golden.
- When biscuits are done, paint them with the melted butter using a pastry brush.
- Just before serving, mix the powdered sugar, water, vanilla and lemon juice to create a glaze. Drizzle over biscuits.
Awesome taste! Had to add flour; came out scone-ish, but good good good!
