After making our Crock Pot Blueberry Coconut Crumble I had a handful of blueberries leftover.
Not enough to really make anything with but I still wanted to bake something with them.
I decided to take a plain ol' baking powder biscuit and fancy it up a bit.
But then I noticed I didn't have any shortening or butter.
I gave it a go with sour cream and *tah dah* these light and fluffy yet still crumbly and chewy biscuits evolved.
Gotta love it when the experiments turn out!
Oh, yeah, I should mention that these are not only super de duper easy but also ridiculously quick to whip up. In fact, I had the biscuits cut out and on the cookie tray before the oven even had time to preheat.
3 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together milk and sour cream.
Using a fork, stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat out into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle your hands with flour if you find the dough too sticky.
Sprinkle the blueberries evenly on half of the rectangle.
Carefully fold the dough over to cover the blueberries.
Cut out with a sharp-edged cutter or simply cut into squares. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 15 - 25 minutes. Until bottoms and tops of biscuits are light golden brown.
Remove from heat and serve warm or room temp. They look pretty non-nonchalant until you cut them open...
Maybe a close up might convince you that you need these...
But wait.... these are worth a trip to the store to buy butter. I mean.... we all know that biscuits with melty butter are the best...
There it is.
From start to finish in about half an hour.
It doesn't get too much easier than that.
