Blueberry biscuits with lemon glaze.

Big fluffy buttermilk biscuits are always delicious with some melted butter oozing out of them and some great jam on top, but what about stuffing them full of big plump and juicy blueberries?  Then to take it up a notch, how about drizzling some lemony glaze full of fresh lemon juice and zest all over them after they come out of the oven?  I promise that you will be drooling while you wait for them to cool enough to eat.


These are the easiest homemade biscuits you’ll ever make.  I’ll show you in the pictures below, how I made these super easy biscuits…

Top Left – I made a quick and easy biscuit batter.  I patted it out to about 1/2 inch in thickness.  I didn’t really have to knead the dough.  I just added flour until it was no longer sticky.

Top Right – I spread frozen blueberries all over the top.  It’s important to use frozen blueberries so that you don’t have juice oozing out everywhere.

Bottom Left – I gently folded one half of the dough over the other half.

Bottom Right – Then I folded it over one more time, before patting the dough out again.

Lastly, I cut the biscuits and placed them in a well-greased iron skillet.  If you don’t have an iron skillet, you can use a 9-inch round cake pan.  Once the biscuits baked for about 8 minutes, I removed them from the oven and brushed the tops with melted butter, and returned them to the oven to finish baking.

Now for that fresh lemon glaze…it took a whole 5 minutes to make.

All I did was whisk together some milk, vanilla, lemon juice, lemon zest, and powdered sugar.

I let the biscuits cool for about 5 minutes while mixing the glaze, then I drizzled it EVERYWHERE, in every nook and cranny.  YUM!!

These Sweet Blueberry Biscuits with Lemon Glaze are soft and fluffy, loaded with blueberries and they’re finished with a  fresh lemony glaze that sends them right over the top!  I dare you to eat just one!!


Units Scale


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen and shaved, (*see notes below)
  • 1 1/4 cups full-fat buttermilk
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest


Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Grease a 10-inch iron skillet and set aside.  If you don’t have an iron skillet, a round cake pan will work.


  1. Review the illustrated pictures above this recipe before making it.  They will show you exactly how to prepare the dough and add in the blueberries.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add the butter and buttermilk and mix just until all ingredients are incorporated.  Do not over mix.  The mixture will be very wet and sticky.
  3. Dump the mixture onto a well-floured work surface.  Lightly work the biscuit dough with your hands, adding flour as needed, until the dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Using your hands, pat the dough out to about 1/2 inch in thickness.  Scatter the blueberries over the dough.  Gently fold one half of the dough over onto the other half, making sure all of the blueberries stay in the dough.  Now gently fold the dough over again.  Pat the dough out to about 1 inch in thickness.  Using a biscuit cutter, cut the biscuits, making sure to not twist the biscuit cutter as you cut.  You should cut straight down and up.  If any of the blueberries fall out, just tuck them back into the dough.  Reform dough scraps into a disc and pat out again and cut into biscuits.
  5. Place the biscuits in the greased iron skillet, making sure they are touching.  I used a 2-inch cutter and got 10 biscuits.  If you don’t have an iron skillet, feel free to use a round 9-inch cake pan.
  6. Bake biscuits in preheated oven for approximately 8-9 minutes, until they have risen but haven’t started to brown on top.  Remove from oven and brush with the melted butter, making sure you cover all of the biscuits.  Return to oven and bake until the biscuits are golden brown on top and remove from oven.
  7. Set biscuits aside while you make the glaze.


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a 2-cup measuring cup.  Whisk until smooth and the powdered sugar is dissolved.  Drizzle over the hot biscuits and serve immediately.
  2. Biscuits will stay fresh for up to one day but are best the day they are made.  Reheat biscuits by wrapping in a paper towel and heating in a microwave for 10 seconds.


  • *For this recipe I froze the butter, shaved it on a grater and placed it back in the freezer until ready to add to the recipe.  You can also get the butter VERY cold and cut it into small cubes if you don’t want to shave it.
  • This recipe makes about ten 2-inch biscuits.
