Blueberry Biscuits

WJ treated me to a fun weekend. We visited Greenwood, MS. We visited Viking Cooking School, shopped at the retail store which is like shopping for diamonds to me and took a cooking class. As well, we stayed at The Alluvian Hotel and this is where I was inspired! The Alluvian offered not-your-standard Continental breakfast. They refer to it as the Southern Buffet breakfast offering homemade buttermilk biscuits and gravy, pancakes, cheese grits, frittata, and a to-die-for blueberry biscuit.

The Blueberry Biscuit is what inspired me!! It was just slightly sweet. It was crusty on the outside but wonderfully fluffy on the inside.

I wanted to fill my pocket full and bring all I could home.

I didn’t.

But, I did start working on replicating it as soon as I got home!

Tips and Options

  1. First, I used solid vegetable shortening instead of butter in these Blueberry Biscuits. I tested it with both, but they were less dense using shortening. Also, I prefer buttermilk to whole milk. Buttermilk always gives breads and cakes a very tender texture.
  2. I have used both fresh and frozen blueberries in this recipe. Usually, frozen berries are cheaper than fresh.
  3. Most important, you’ll want to make sure your blueberries are dry before adding them to your ingredients.
  4. Serve these Blueberry Biscuits for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Add them to your breakfast and brunch menu. As well, try them with salad for lunch.
  5. Finally, you may like these ham biscuits and blueberry cookies too!

    I haven’t tried this yet so I only gave 3 stars, sorry, I didn’t know how else to ask a question! I don’t have a cast iron pan. I’d love to try this recipe. What else can I use to bake these?

    Thank-you, I can’t wait to try them. 🙂
