Lemon Blueberry Biscuits with a Lemony Glaze
By: Mary Pellegrini
Take a leisurely drive through the Hood River Valley and you'll find acres of Blueberry Farms nestled among the pears and apples we're famous for. We use pounds of them when they are in season and also freeze a bunch for the winter to be added to breakfast treats like these Lemon Blueberry Biscuits. This mornings sweet treat at the Old Parkdale Inn
‘Lemon and Blueberries made such a fresh and flavorful combination in all kinds of baked goods, especially these sweet biscuits’ Taste of Home Test Kitchen
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup lemon yogurt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk yogurt, egg, butter and lemon peel until blended. Add to flour mixture, stir just until moistened. Fold in Blueberries.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes or until light brown.
In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over warm biscuits. If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the dough. Makes about a dozen sweet and tangy biscuits
