Vanilla & Lemon Glazed Blueberry Biscuits I Nessa Makes

Today’s recipe is from Vanessa with Nessa Makes and you will want to try this one!  She is sharing with us her recipe for Vanilla & Lemon Glazed Blueberry Biscuits.  I have never had anything but home-style or buttermilk biscuits.  As soon as I heard blueberry my mouth was watering!  I hope you enjoy her recipe!

Vanilla & Lemon Glazed Blueberry Biscuits

Since I’m getting ready to have baby #3 here in the next few weeks, I have been trying to come up with some meal ideas that are not only easy to make, but are great to freeze for later and pop into the oven. Sometimes I like serving something other than cereal and breakfast bars to my family and these blueberry biscuits are the perfect food to do so, and freeze some extra up for later! I love that I know every ingredient in the recipe– and that my kids are getting something made with love and real ingredients. Kudos to me!

Vanilla & Lemon Glazed Blueberry Biscuits

Ingredients:

For the Biscuits (Yields Approx. 12, but double this recipe to freeze some for later):

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 5 Tablespoon of cold butter, cut into chunks
  • 3-6 oz fresh blueberries (I like lots of blueberries in my batter!)

For the Glaze:

  • 1 Cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/8 Cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or in your stand mixer, combine all dry ingredients at low speed. Add milk and incorporate into dry ingredients completely at a medium speed, then add chunks of cold butter until everything is mixed.
  3. Using a mixing spoon, carefully fold in blueberries until completely incorporated. Place dough on a cool, floured surface and roll out until it's about 1/2" thick. If your dough is too sticky, knead in more flour until you get your desired consistency before you roll it out.
  4. If your butter is starting to soften before you roll it out, stick it into the refrigerator and allow to firm up before you roll out your dough.
  5. Cut out biscuit-shaped pieces of dough with a biscuit cutter, canning jar lid or a glass (the latter two work really well if you don't have a biscuit cutter!) and place on a greased baking sheet.
  6. If you're freezing some for later, place your cut-out dough on a parchment paper-lined tray individually, freeze, then place into a Freezer bag with baking instructions written on the bag for future reference.
  7. Bake your biscuits for 7-10 minutes. While they are baking, make your glaze by mixing together the above glaze ingredients with a small whisk or spoon. Drizzle glaze onto biscuits when still hot. I just glaze them right on the baking sheet!
  8. And of course, the biscuits are always best served warm/hot. Enjoy!

    These sound so yummy and I can’t wait to try them! I’m a lemon lover. Unfortunately, I don’t see any mention of lemon in the ingredient list. Was it omitted by accident? My guess would be a tablespoon or two in the glaze.

    Kindly, Dian
