Makes About a Dozen Biscuits

Want a sweet treat for breakfast? I've got a great recipe for blueberry biscuits! For the biscuits you're going to need flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and butter. Frozen butter is actually better. And a cup of frozen blueberries.

The recipe does call for 3/4 of a cup of buttermilk, but if you're like me, you don't keep that around. Don't worry, you can put 3/4 of a tablespoon of some vinegar or lemon juice the bottom of a measuring cup, and then take regular milk and fill it all the way up to the 3/4 cup line.

You can mix these up by hand, but it will go a lot faster if you have a mixer, preferably with a dough hook. You're also going to need a black iron skillet. First, pre-heat your oven to 475.

Go ahead and mix your dry ingredients with two cups of the flour, one tablespoon of baking powder, a half a teaspoon of salt, and 3 tablespoons of sugar. You can stir that up with a whisk. Take the cold, or better, frozen butter, I use a cheese grater to break it up into the dry mixture.

Then I add the milk or buttermilk, and mix it until it just comes together. Then I'll flour my surface and roll out the dough to about a 1/2 inch thickness.

Then sprinkle on the blueberries, about a cup, and then I'll roll that back together and flatten it all over again.

Take your black iron skillet and put it in the over that's already preheated for a few minutes and let it warm up. Spread some butter on there and let it melt. The more butter the better!

Cut your biscuits, then lay them on the warm skillet. Take a little milk and brush it on the biscuits.

Put them back in the oven for about 10 minutes. While they're in there, go ahead make your glaze.

You'll take a cup of powdered sugar, a half teaspoon of vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of milk. Stir it until it becomes a nice smooth goo.

After 10 minutes of baking, pull out the biscuits and take a half a cup of melted butter. Pour that on to the biscuits and then put them back in the oven for 10 more minutes, or until they're starting to turn golden brown.

Then take the biscuits out of the oven and spread the goo all over. Some of the goo will sizzle on the bottom of the skillet! Serve the biscuits while they're hot, right out of the pan!
