Oh, I know you've had Bojangles' Boberry Biscuits? My first time, I was in North Carolina, playing The Fun Auntie, so I had a car full of my nieces and nephews and somebody yelled out, ... and some of those biscuits too! We ordered a dozen, so we had to pull over and wait, which means, we got them hot out of the oven and man-o-man! We all sat in the car smacking on those blueberry biscuits. So, good, we drove back the next day and specifically asked that they be hot out of the oven - and again, right there in the car in the parking lot, we indulged in the oom, oom goodness! A beautiful memory being with maybe only 4 or 5 of my now, 30+ nieces and nephews, me, ReRe, Auntie!
Anyway, I vowed that day that I would make them myself, of course from scratch with fresh blueberries and I like a citrus icing and man-o-man! So, what I did was use My Buttermilk Biscuit recipe and the only difference is the cooking time. For these biscuits, you want them crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, so twice as long 30-40 minutes depending on your oven's temperature(425 F) and the size of your biscuits.
Recipe for My Blueberry Biscuits
To make the biscuits, we start with My Recipe Mariby Corpening's Infamous Buttermilk Biscuits.
From there, only a few additions, to include:
- Folding in 2 cups of blueberries
- Baking twice as long - 30-40 minutes - until the outside is crispy brown
- Making a quick Citrus Icing, I like to add a tablespoon of either orange or lemon juice
- 2 cups of Powered Sugar
- 4 Tbls Butter (melted)
- 2 Tbls of Milk
- 1 to 2 Tbls of Lemon (or Orange) Juice
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Pinch of Salt (optional)
With Fresh Blueberries & Citrus Icing
