Now if you needed to make dairy free blueberry biscuits I will go over that too below. One choice is to make Crisco Biscuits and just fold in the fruit at the end. You can also make buttermilk yourself with a milk of your choice. A fun treat in the evenings or with coffee in the morning. (affiliate links present)

Biscuits with Blueberries

Blueberries, those little gems of nature, are a fitting partner for biscuits. Their slightly tart and tangy flavor profile is a perfect match for the biscuit’s subtle sweetness. They also lend a natural juiciness and a vibrant burst of color that adds visual appeal to the treat.

From the moment they’re mixed into this or our butter swim Bisquick biscuits dough to the moment they burst open in the oven, these small blue fruits infuse each one with a touch of magic. In this recipe we will show you how to make them homemade, and what not to do when mixing and cutting them out.

This is How to Make Biscuits From Scratch with fresh berries inside. The next question = can you use frozen berries to make these? Technically you could but the texture would be way different. With these if you defrosted them first, you’d have to drain the juice and they will break apart when folding inside.

Frozen from the get go you will have a bit more moisture added into the dough as they bake and defrost inside. The only time I like to use frozen blueberries is when we make sweet rolls with them rolled into the center. In this case it is just really better to use fresh produce.

  • Fresh blueberries
  • 2 – 2 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Salt
  • Butter needs to be cold, or vegan plant based alternative
  • Milk
  • Glaze
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice, milk or melted butter works

Now if you wanted to make these into a sweet and savory meal you could air fry or cook up some chicken to sandwich in between the middle like our Whataburger Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit does. A fun meal you can make way cheaper than at the restaurant and with the fruit baked right in you get even more sweets in every bite.

How to Bake Biscuits with Blueberries

Easy Blueberry Biscuits

Whether you make our Strawberry Biscuit recipe or this fruit you preheat oven to 425 F. In a bowl, mix all of the flour mixture dry ingredients together. Add cold unsalted butter chopped or it is better to shave it. This is important to get them as fluffy as possible. The bits will melt and the steam will create the puffiness you want. Adding room temperature won’t have the same effect.

  • Use a pastry cutter to blend and turn the mixture into crumbs.
  • Add milk and stir just enough to incorporate dry ingredients, NO more. Gently fold in blueberries.
  • Very lightly flour a cutting board.
  • Dump dough out and roll out or press with palms into a 1-1.5″ thick (thicker will take longer, just a note) piece
  • Use a sharp metal biscuit cutter to press out circles, do NOT twist to keep them fluffy.
  • Set on a non stick baking sheet. Or into hot oil to make Fried Biscuits
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 425 F for about 13 minutes until insides are no longer wet and tops are golden brown. (timing will depend on how thick they are)
  • As soon as they are fluffy and done remove from oven, off sheet pan and on to a cooling rack so they don’t dry out. Allow to cool to room temperature
  • To make into sweet biscuits; In a bowl whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice for glaze. Drizzle on top and enjoy.

Now you could cook them as Homemade Air Fryer Biscuits as well. I feel like they don’t quite get as fluffy this way and the outsides get crispier than I’d like. A great alternative though if it is too hot to turn on your oven or you are in an R.V.

Glazed Blueberry Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits with Blueberries

While classic blueberry biscuits are a joy on their own, you can in fact make them a few different ways with simple ingredients. If you want something quicker just make our Mayonnaise Biscuits and drop a few on top of each one before baking. Total time to get it all done is about 20 minutes flat. Totally worth the extra steps.

  1. Lemon Blueberry Biscuits Add a zesty twist by incorporating lemon zest or juice into the biscuit dough. The citrusy brightness complements the fresh blueberries beautifully.
  2. Cream Cheese Blueberry Biscuits Introducing cream cheese into the biscuit dough adds richness and a slightly tangy flavor that complements the sweetness of the blueberries.
  3. Streusel Topping For an added layer of texture and flavor, top your blueberry biscuits with a buttery streusel made from flour, sugar, and butter.
  4. Biscuit Glaze A simple glaze made from powdered sugar and milk can be drizzled over the baked biscuits for an extra touch of sweetness and visual appeal.
  5. Buttermilk Blueberry Biscuits Using buttermilk instead of regular milk in your biscuit dough adds a tangy flavor and a subtle richness that pairs wonderfully with the blueberries.

I mean you don’t need to add a frosting or glaze at all to make these buttermilk biscuits but it takes these babies to the next level for sure. If you want a crispier Cinnamon Biscuits like style just make smaller and add 1-2 minutes.

Blueberry Buttermilk Biscuits

These were made on the thin side so they would resemble cookies when they were done. If you want them thicker, don’t roll the dough quite as thin. Watch thru the window after minute 5 or so. Once browned on top test with a toothpick in the center.

Which liquid makes the best biscuits?

Buttermilk is a popular choice for making biscuits because its acidity reacts with baking powder or baking soda, helping the biscuits rise and become tender. It also adds a tangy flavor and a subtle richness to the dough. Milk biscuits are usually soft and tender but might not have the same depth of flavor as buttermilk biscuits.

What makes a high quality biscuit?

High quality combines a perfect balance of texture, flavor, and appearance. Whether it’s a flaky blueberry biscuit, a savory cheddar biscuit, or a sweet shortbread cookie, certain characteristics define what makes a biscuit truly exceptional.

How do you make my biscuits rise higher?

Using a high heat between 425-475 degrees F will make them rise faster and higher making the insides fluffy.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • ** Tip, for best results freeze your stick of butter for 1 hour before shaving on a grater. This will result in a fluffier biscuit.
  • Preheat oven to 425 F. In a bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together. Add cold butter shaved on a cheese grater. Use a pastry cutter to blend and turn the mixture into crumbs.
  • Add milk and stir just enough to incorporate dry ingredients, NO more. Gently fold in blueberries. If dough is too wet you can add a bit extra flour until you achieve a smooth and a bit shaggy dough.
  • Very lightly flour a cutting board. Dump dough out and use the palms of your hands to flatten to become the same thickness all the way across, working it the least amount possible – yields fluffier results. (can use rolling pin but may crush berries.
  • Use a sharp metal biscuit cutter to press out circles, do NOT twist to keep them fluffy. Set on a non stick baking sheet.
  • Bake on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper in a preheated oven at 425 F for 12-15 minutes until insides are no longer wet and tops are golden brown. (timing will depend on how thick they are)
  • As soon as they are fluffy and done remove from oven, off sheet pan and on to a cooling rack so they don't dry out.
  • In a bowl whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice for glaze. Drizzle on top and enjoy.
