Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. For the biscuits:.
  2. combine ingredients until crumbly in bowl, then knead 3-4 times with your hands in the bowl. I start off with 1 cup half and half, then add by the tablespoon until the dough sticks together without being sticky.
  3. turn out onto a lightly floured counter-top and pat down with your hands to about 1 inch in thickness.
  4. use a biscuit cutter or the top of a glass to cut rounds and place on a baking sheet.
  5. collect the scraps and pat down to use all remaining dough – makes about 6 biscuits.
  6. bake at 400 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. For the filling:.
  8. combine ingredients and cook on medium high until boiling and beginning to thicken.
  9. reduce heat to medium and cook for about 5 minutes, then turn off heat.
  10. Once biscuits have baked, hollow out the centers and fill with blueberry filling. Add a drizzle of glaze just before serving (combine glaze ingredients, stir until smooth and set aside until needed).
