Biscuits, blueberries, vanilla sauce, and hot coffee …..what’s NOT to love?!?

This is a great recipe to have on hand. It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even an afternoon snack.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 stick butter, very cold and cut into cubes
3/4 – 1 cup buttermilk
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a dough blender or fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter is about the size of peas throughout. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk and mix until it comes together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more buttermilk until it just wet. Gently fold in the blueberries until thoroughly integrated through the dough.


On a floured surface, fold the dough over itself a couple of times and knead. (You only have to do this 2-3 times.) Do not overwork the dough. Press the dough flat until it is about one inch thick. With a cookie cutter, cut into biscuits and place on a buttered cast iron pan. By the time I got around to cutting them out, the blueberries had begun to thaw. Oh well, life happens and they tasted just as delicious even if they weren’t gorgeous! (Maybe I shouldn’t have put this photo in?)


Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through. About halfway through the cooking time, slather the biscuits with melted butter. Trust me, you will not regret it!

Meanwhile, prepare the vanilla sauce by mixing the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk until it is perfectly smooth.

Allow the biscuits to cool in the pan about 10 minutes before spooning the sauce over them. That will give you just enough time to make a fresh pot of coffee!

Super easy…super delicious…super addictive!
