Lemon Blueberry Biscuits

I love me some summer time berries.
I love the perfect sweetness of all of God's beautiful berries. . .


I will admit, I've been dreaming a lot lately about Blueberry Scones, 
but I could never muster up the energy to get in the kitchen to make them.
When I found this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Biscuits, I thought it might be a little 
easier than the scones.
It was well worth the effort.


The ingredients;  2 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder,
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup (8 oz.)  Greek lemon yogurt*, 1 egg,
1/4 cup butter melted, 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel, &1 cup fresh blueberries

Printable recipe will be at bottom of page.

*the regular yogurt is only a little over 5 oz.  I also added a little vanilla yogurt I had in the refrigerator.
Next time, I would just go ahead and add 2 of the lemon yogurts.

For the glaze you will need; 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.



In a large bowl, whisk the first five ingredients.




In another bowl, whisk the yogurt, egg, melted butter, & lemon peel.
Add to the flour mixture and stir until moistened.
It will seem dry & you will be tempted to add some milk,...but don't.
It will be just right.  Just keep stirring with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.



Gently fold in the blueberries.




Use your hands to gently incorporate them into the dough.




Drop by 1/3 cupfuls about 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet.
Makes 1 dozen.
The directions said bake for 15 minutes.
I had to add 10 minutes to get them golden brown.



In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients; 
confectioners' sugar,  lemon juice, & lemon peel.
Stir until smooth



Spoon over warm biscuits and breathe in the glorious aroma.
I wish I had a blog smell app.





They were scrumptious.  They would be perfect with coffee or hot tea.
or as John Wayne said...
"Get off your horse and drink your milk."

The old enamel coffee pot was a recent treasure find to add to my coffee pot collection.
...cause in the south, 3 of anything means you got yourself a collection.





Because I made them at supper time, we thought they were pretty good with ham and eggs.

Ain't no granny in Hardee's that could make these any better.

By the way...did you know they stopped selling the cinnamon raisin biscuits at Hardee's?
That was the only thing I ever went to Hardee's for.  Guess I never have to go there now.




I am thankful that there are some left on the Hoosier for tomorrow's breakfast.




I am anxiously awaiting breakfast. . .
