Servings 5 -6


  • 2 cup all purpose flour-a little extra for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons very cold cut butter
  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Teaspoons of lemon zest
  • 1-2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Cube 6 tablespoons of Butter in small squares , place in a small bowl and place in the freezer for 10 minutes
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush the pan you are using liberally, I used a cast iron skillet
  • In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and granulated sugar
  • Once the butter is cold enough using a fork or pastry cutter cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter looks like small pebbles or peas
  • Remove the buttermilk from the fridge and slowly mix it into the flour mixture.
  • Fold in blueberries carefully, if using frozen they won't break as easily
  • Turn the mixture onto a floured surface and with floured hands press the dough into a1/2 -3/4 rectangle-Do Not Roll or the berries will break
  • Use a bicuit cutter or glass and cut the biscuits and place them in the pan
  • You will need to reform the dough to cut more biscuits, you should be able to get 5-6 depending on the size
  • Brush the biscuits with the melted butter
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-14 or until golden brown
  • While the bicuits are baking mix the glaze to the consistency you like using fresh lemon juice
  • Once the biscuits are done let them cool for 5 minutes
  • Drizzle glaze on biscuits
