MY REVIEW

"These were really good and quick to make. The few we had left over were just as good a day later."

MY REVIEW

MY REVIEW

"Jersey blueberries are in season, so any recipe with blueberries is on my radar now. Well, these are one of the best things I have ever made from this magazine which I've been getting for years! My husband was crazy about them! He called them a perfect cross between a scone and a muffin. They are easy, fabulous, and I will make them over and over again! And I froze some Jersey blueberries, so I can make them in the winter! I also thought the batter seemed a bit dry, but I baked them for just 15 minutes and they came out golden brown and incredibly moist! Fantastic recipe!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2014

"Made this because I had just picked up some fresh blueberries at the farmer market; such an amazingingly refreshing recipe! My husband, who usually does not care for sweets, loved this recipe and I had rave reviews from a couple moms I had over for a playdate. The lemon glaze is the "icing on the cake" and added the right amount of sweetness to them."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2014

"Having just picked 6 lbs of blueberries ( I froze 4 lbs), I was looking for blueberry recipes to try. These were super easy to make. I could not find lemon yogurt so I bought a 6 oz of store brand Lemon Chiffon yogurt to use as a substitute. Like the other reviewer, I was concerned that the mix seemed a bit dry but I went with it. I ended up with 18 biscuits vs. 12 as they were plenty big enough. I also debated on whether to do the glaze but decided to try it. Very glad I did as it adds just that little touch of extra flavor. I will definitely be making these again!"
