The Best Blueberry Biscuits
This blueberry biscuit recipe was inspired by the iconic bo berry biscuits from Bojangles, and I know I'm biased, but I think I've created one of the most delicious baked goods you'll ever have!
I mean, this recipe makes perfectly tender, moist, and crumbly homemade buttermilk biscuits. They'd be delicious on their own, but the blueberry biscuits are taken to another level by filling them with fresh blueberries and topping 'em off with sweet icing that has a hint of lemon.
Doesn't that sound incredible?!
Also, you can even make these Zaxby's chicken fingers too, so you can have a fried chicken dinner before enjoying the biscuits for dessert. Talk about the best chicken and biscuits ever!
Ingredients You'll Need

- Fresh blueberries- you can also use frozen blueberries that have been thawed.
- Baking powder
- Butter- cold and cubed
Homemade sweet glaze:
- Powdered sugar
- Butter- melted and cooled.

By the way, I use some of these same ingredients to make these pancake mix muffins, so you'll definitely want to try those next!
How To Make Boberry Biscuits
Step 1: Make The Biscuit Dough
First, you can line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 450°F for later. Next, you're going to toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour in a mixing bowl until they're all fully coated, then you can set them aside.
To make the dough, combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Then add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture and work it into the dry ingredient mixture with a pastry cutter or with clean fingers.
Once combined, you can add in the buttermilk and stir until the dough comes together. As soon as you have a dough consistency, you'll want to shape the dough into a ball and roll it out to ½-inch thickness on a well-floured surface.
Step 2: Roll The Dough
Now that you have a biscuit dough, you'll want to place the lightly floured blueberries on top of the rolled dough and then fold the dough inward, bringing the ends to meet in the center.
Next, you can roll out the dough for a second time until it's again about ½ inch thick.
Then you'll want to cut out about 8 biscuits using a 3-inch biscuit cutter or cookie cutter. After that, gather the remaining dough and cut out the rest biscuits.
Step 3: Bake The Biscuits
Once you've cut out all of the blueberry biscuits, you can arrange them on the prepared baking sheet and bake the biscuits for 7 minutes.
After that, you'll want to remove them from the oven and brush the tops of 'em with melted butter. Then you can bake the biscuits for another 3 minutes or until they're lightly golden brown on top.
As soon as they're looking good, you'll want to remove the biscuits from the oven and arrange them on a wire rack to cool.
Step 4: Make The Glaze
The final step - and the best part of this recipe - is to make the glaze that finishes off the blueberry biscuits.
So to do that, you'll want to add the powdered sugar, milk, lemon juice, and melted butter to a bowl. Then you can whisk all of these ingredients together until they're nice and smooth.
Finally, drizzle the icing all over the bo biscuits, let the icing set for a minute or so, and serve warm. Enjoy!
How To Store These Biscuits
If you happen to have some blueberry biscuits left over, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 days or in the fridge for up to a week. If you want to keep them for even longer, you can put the biscuits in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months.
If you are planning to store them, you'll want to reserve the icing drizzle until you're ready to serve them.
Whenever you're ready to enjoy them again, you can either eat them as is or reheat them. To reheat, just pop the biscuit in the microwave for about 10 seconds, then finish it off with the glaze drizzled on top.
And if you're reheating the frozen biscuits, either add some more time when you microwave them or just let 'em thaw in the fridge overnight.
