These biscuits are made with simple ingredients and come together in no time. You’ll start out by sifting together all the dry ingredients until well combined. Slice the chilled butter into small pats and add it to the dry ingredients, using a fork or pastry cutter to work it into the mixture until small crumbles form. Next, slowly add 1 cup of whole milk to the mixture, stirring until just combined. The secret to a soft and fluffy biscuit is not overmixing the dough. Once the milk is incorporated, gently fold in 1 ½ cups of frozen blueberries. You don’t want to thaw your blueberries because they would add too much moisture to the dough at this step. We want them to hold together as much as possible!

Arrange the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with a little melted butter for a crisp and golden outside.. Bake them for about 16-18 minutes, or until they are golden brown. The result is a batch of biscuits that are tender, flaky, and bursting with blueberry flavor. Serve them warm with a pat of butter or a drizzle of honey, and dig in!
