Chocolate chip biscuits are one of the kids most favorite breakfasts. I make them at least twice a month and always try to make extras for the freezer. Since they are such a hit, I haven’t really played around with the recipe all that much.
That changed last week when I had some blueberries on hand that I wanted to use up. I originally thought of the usual blueberry suspects – muffins, pancakes, berry syrup, fritters…apparently we like blueberries a lot because there were a ton of options I could have gone with. But I had already gotten a few requests for chocolate chip biscuits. So, I decided it was time to do a little tweaking!
Glazed Blueberry Biscuit Bites
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 3 T. sugar
- 1 T. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/4 c. butter, cut into pieces
- 1 t. vanilla
- About 1/2 c. milk
- 1 c. blueberries
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 3 T. milk
1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in vanilla and just enough milk until dough comes together and isn’t sticky.
2. Knead dough for 2 minutes. Roll into a large rectangle on a floured surface, about 1/2-inch thick. Pour blueberries on top of half of the dough. Fold the remaining dough over the top and press lightly.
3. Cut dough into about 1 1/2 dozen squares. Gently roll each square into a ball and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown on top. Cool completely.
4. In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over biscuit bites and enjoy!
These are perfect to make a day or two ahead of time, but make sure that you store them so that they are covered well, preferably in a plastic storage bag or plastic container, otherwise they could get very dry.
