What an amazing, easy to make treat for breakfast or tea time! I am thinking these would be perfect for an Easter or Mother's Day brunch as well!
Makes 9 ( 6 points +)
- 2 c. flour
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 c. skim milk
- 5 T. very cold light butter ( freeze the butter for 30-60 minutes before using)
- 3 oz. fresh blueberries
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 T. skim milk
Preheat oven to 450.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk until dough starts to form. Cut frozen butter into chunks and fold into dough until evenly spread ( you do not want the butter to start melting or your biscuits will spread). Carefully fold in blueberries.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and pat to about 1/2 inch thickness. Using a 2-3/4 inch biscuit cutter, cut out 9 biscuits. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden ( do not over bake)
Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Frost biscuits as soon as you remove them from the oven. Serve warm.
