Sweet Buttermilk Biscuits With Blueberries
Raise your hand if you’ve never used Bisquick to make biscuits! I have to admit, I keep Bisquick in the pantry, but 9 times out of 10, when I grab it it’s to make pancakes. These Blueberry Biscuits are sure to make you a convert, though.
If you’re not a fan of savory biscuits, you’ll still love this Bisquick Blueberry Biscuit recipe because the added fruit and glaze is a total game-changer. Say good-bye to boring, plain biscuits and hello to your favorite new breakfast pastry.

The smell of these Bisquick Blueberry Biscuits wafting through the house in the morning will even bring teenagers to the kitchen! When I make this recipe, I like to serve it with yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit, and sausage or bacon, but if your family prefers a lighter breakfast, you can make a meal out of the Blueberry Biscuits.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe for Bisquick Blueberry Biscuits:
- Bisquick – I haven’t tested this recipe with other baking mixes, so I suggest sticking with the original or my DIY Bisquick mix.
- Sugar – You’ll need 1/3 cup of sugar to sweeten the biscuit dough, then another tablespoon to sprinkle on the biscuits before baking. If you have Demerara sugar on hand, you can sprinkle that over the top instead for a little more crunch.
- Blueberries – You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, or swap the blueberries for diced strawberries.
- Buttermilk – Don’t have buttermilk on hand? You can make your own with lemon juice and whole milk.
- Powdered Sugar – If you want, you can skip the powdered sugar icing, but it’s so good, you really shouldn’t!
- Milk – The icing is made with milk, but you can add a bright burst of citrus flavor by using lemon juice or orange juice instead. For a pretty pastel pink color, use ruby red grapefruit or blood orange juice.
How to Make Blueberry Biscuits With Bisquick
Get out a large cookie sheet and preheat your oven to 450ºF.
2. Make the Dough
Combine the Bisquick, sugar, and buttermilk in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Fold in the blueberries.
3. Form the Biscuits
Use a large cookie dough scoop or 1/4 cup measuring cup and drop the dough onto the baking sheet (no need to grease it!). Sprinkle the biscuits with sugar.
Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven and bake the biscuits for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.
5. Make the Glaze
Combine the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until there are no lumps. Drizzle the glaze over the biscuits, then serve.
How do you make blueberry biscuits from scratch?
If you’d prefer to make your blueberry biscuits with a traditional biscuit dough, simply substitute your favorite biscuit recipe instead, adding sugar to the dough to sweeten it a bit if needed.
Do blueberry biscuits need to be refrigerated?
No, you can place your blueberry biscuits in a resealable container once they’ve cooled and keep them on the countertop for 2–3 days.
