Blueberry Biscuits

Blueberries are one fruit I can never seem to pass by in the produce section, especially when thy are on sale.
I enjoy them in pancakes, scones, bread, muffins, cinnamon rollsl, in salads...yogurt...
Then I realized I hadn't ever made them in biscuits.


I mean, c'mon now. Look at- those fluffy biscuits with a sweet lemon glaze on them. 
They aren't scones!
These are light.
Airy.
Fluffy.
Blueberry.
Oh-so-yummy!


I chose to bake mine up in my flat iron skillet. Because I pretty much love to bake and/or cook any and everything in my iron skillets.
A baking sheet will get the job done also, obviously.


I mean, look at those juicy berries baked in a fluffy cloud of biscuit and drizzled with melted butter and then topped with icing. 
You could leave off the powdered sugar goodness on the top, for real.
They are delicious biscuits without the icing, but with is just...magical. Lemon is mixed in and the flavor shines through just enough to make these irresistible.
I eat them while they are fresh from the oven.
As fresh as possible.


And I have never, ever been able to eat just one. 
Never.
Since they take only minutes to mix together, and only a few more to bake up in the oven...they are so easy to whip up any morning of the week. 
I've even made them for dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth while dinner was cooking. 
They won't leave anyone disappointed!
