Berry Biscuits

2 Cups Flour
 1 Cup milk (cold)
1/3 Cup sugar
 5 T of butter (cold or frozen)
4 tsp baking powder
 1 tsp salt
3 oz of blueberries 

1 Cup of powdered sugar
1/8 Cup of water
1 tsp of vanilla
½ tsp of lemon juice

1.Preheat oven to 450F. Mix salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder in a bowl. Add the super cold milk into dry ingredients and mix. As dough begins to form take each tablespoon of hardened butter and break chunks off and spread evenly over dough. Fold dough, and knead… repeat until all butter is spread in chunks evenly throughout dough.

2.Move dough to floured cutting board and roll flat to about ¼ - ½ thick (or to desired thickness) and cut approximately 6 Biscuits with a biscuit or cookie cutter.Place in oven and bake for about 7-12 minutes. Melt 1 tablespoon of low-fat butter in the microwave, and paint finished biscuits with pastry brush. Mix glaze ingredients in a bowl, and drizzle over biscuits with a fork.

* I thought that these had great flavor but mine were more like drop biscuits. I didnt want to add to much flour and make them tough and my dough was not thick enough to cut into regular biscuits so mine ended up like drop biscuits but were really yummy. Next time I will add flour so that I can cut them and see how they turn out.
