My brother-in-law, Brandon ask us if we had ever eaten a Bo-Berry Biscuit from Bojangles, we had not. Which led us on a quest to try, after his very mouth watering descriptive definition of the taste. Heath and I stopped and split one, it was tasty but my brain thought if this was homemade how much better. I started working with my favorite biscuit recipe and came up with what I think is a beyond yummy knock off recipe. If you like biscuits and blueberries you will enjoy biting into these. A great Father’s Day treat or any day breakfast yum 😋
1 c. powdered sugar
2 Tbs. whole milk
½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 cups all-purpose Flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
3 Tbs. sugar
1 stick cold butter
¾ c. buttermilk
1 c. frozen blueberries
milk for brushing
½ stick melted butter for brushing biscuits.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Make the glaze
In a small bowl, combine all glaze ingredients and whisk until smooth. Set aside.
Make the biscuits
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Using a pastry cutter, cut in the cold butter until the butter is about pea sized.
Slowly add buttermilk and using a fork, stir until just combined.
Sprinkle your prepared kneading area with some flour.
Place the sticky dough on the floured area and sprinkle with more flour.
Roll the dough out and flatten to about 1/2″ thickness. Sprinkle more flour, if needed.
Pour the blueberries onto the dough. Fold the dough over (sprinkle more flour, if needed) and gently knead it a couple of times and roll back out to about 1″ thickness. Sprinkle more flour, if really sticky.
Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits. If you do not have a biscuit cutter use a glass cup.
Place biscuits in a buttered 10 inch cast-iron skillet making sure biscuits are touching.
Brush with milk to help them brown.
Bake at 450 for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, brush with melted butter liberally.
Place back in the oven for 5 minutes more.
Once done, let them sit for about 1-2 minutes then pour the glaze all over the biscuits. Eat and enjoy!
Happy Baking 😊
