SWEET BLUEBERRY BISCUITS YUMMY


ingredients

biscuits
3 cups all purpose flour - I used white lily a flour available in most southern stores-
1 tb baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 tb sugar
1 stick unsalted butter - very cold -
3/4  - ish cup buttermilk -use enough until the dough is just barely wet enough-
1 c frozen blueberries - we used fresh blueberries that had been frozen overnight -
1/3 stick melted salted butter
sauce
1 c powdered sugar
4 Tb milk - or more if not thin enough-
1/3 tsp vanilla

how to make it 

cut butter into small pats and lay out on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper stick in the freezer for at least 15 minutes prepare cast iron skillet with a tiny amount of bacon grease if available easiest thing- fry one piece of bacon wipe out the pan and you’re good to go
preheat oven to 400 degrees
stir the sauce ingredients together - powdered sugar milk vanilla - and make sure the powdered sugar is completely dissolved
combine all the dry ingredients - flour baking powder salt sugar - together and then cut in the cold unsalted butter cut in until the butter is about pea - sized relatively well mixed in add buttermilk add slowly until you have just enough where the dough separates from the sides of the bowl stir until just combined and roll it out onto a well-floured surface
before kneading prepare a large area for kneading - I use a large cutting board for easy clean-up - sprinkle the area with some flour put the dough on the floured area and sprinkle some flour over the dough press the dough out - no need to roll with a pin - and flatten to about 1/3 thickness put blueberries over dough knead a couple of times and flatten back out to about 1 thickness - honestly the thicker the better because they rise so beautifully -the berries will likely start to bleed onto the dough and you’ll start to see flecks of blue as the berries defrost
place biscuits in a cast-iron skillet and be sure biscuits are touching.
bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes somewhere around 8 to 10 minutes take the skillet out of the oven and brush the biscuits with melted salted butter this is an integral part of the baking process and be liberal with it brush on the sides of the biscuits if they are showing when you begin to see the tops lightly brown - and the blueberries burst - take them out the temperature in the middle of the biscuits will remain very hot once out of the oven and will continue the cooking process

note

some people have mentioned that they have to leave their biscuits in for longer than 12 or 15 minutes I have never had to leave mine in for longer but if you fear yours aren’t getting done and want to leave them in for longer be sure to watch them like a hawk I promise they will go from done to burnt in just a few seconds
when you take the biscuits out of the oven let the pan cool for about 15 minutes pour the sauce over the biscuits after 15 minutes use as much or little of the sauce as desired
