Blueberry Biscuits


  • Yield: 16 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 3c flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/4c buttermilk
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 1/2c blueberries (don’t thaw if using frozen)

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and combine with a pastry blender or two forks until very crumbly. The pieces should be no larger than peas. (Alternately, you can combine the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the pieces are no larger than peas.)
  2. *If desired, you can prepare the dough up to this point and refrigerate up to 1 day until ready to continue.
  3. Combine egg and buttermilk and pour into dry mixture. Add blueberries, and gently stir with a fork until just combined. Flour the countertop and turn dough onto the counter.
  4. Pat out to a square, about 3/4″ in thickness. Being careful not to slice all the way through, slice large square into 16 smaller squares, keeping the dough in one large piece. Carefully transfer scored biscuits to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (this is easier with a spatula or a bench scraper).
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until tops are just golden.

Notes

Variation: add 1 tsp lemon or orange zest into the batter with the sugar, etc.
