Homemade Blueberry Biscuits, perfect for breakfast or just a snack!
I think someone’s Friday just got better… We’re about to answer the age-old question; what’s the difference between a scone and a biscuit.
Anyone know? I got nothin’. I guess you could say that biscuits are meant to be savory and scones are not? But my biscuits are not savory, so that’s that.
I do, however, have a beautiful Blueberry Scones recipe and now a Blueberry Biscuits recipe. I swear it’s not the same recipe. Pinky swear!
You know what else? Happy Spring!
Yesterday, on the first day of Spring, we were greeted with none other than SNOW! At the top o’ the mornin’, to boot. Didn’t feel very springish. Not.at.all.
But, whatever… it will pass, and soon enough I’ll come back here crying about how hot it is.
While we may not have a world class recipe on our hands here, (YES I do) we do have a recipe that will make your tummy very happy, and that’s all that counts.
This is a good weekend recipe, don’t you think? Warm, sweet biscuits on a Sunday morning? AND a pot of coffee to go with it? I can get on board with that!
I don’t discriminate when it comes to biscuits – sometimes I crave savory biscuits, like those Garlic and Cheddar Biscuits, other times I’m all about the sweet berry biscuits. These berry-lovelies are soft, light and deliciously fluffy. They are also the perfect size to satisfy your big cravings. I mean, it’s not like it’s wine, but it works.
If you are a person who is fully into baking breads, scones, biscuits, etc… this recipe needs to happen in your kitchen super quick. You will be blown away. I ate 4, but could’ve had all 12. Later that day I quickly made some quinoa, just to balance it all out.
