"Absolutely fabulous. And so very easy! My only problem: How do I keep them from getting soggy the second day? I've made them three times and I'm planning to make them again tomorrow. SO very good."

"I tried this recipe and loved it - have made it twice now. Second time I used my silicon muffin pan so I didn't need those cupcake papers. Wonderful - I added an A on my copy to remind myself it was GREAT."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"Kids are home for the 7th day in a row 5 have been storm days from school! We decided to make these and they are very yummy on this cold SPRING day! I thought when I was making them that they looked too dry and looked really big when I made 12 of them but they worked out great! The glace tasted bitter before I added it to the biscuits but again it tasted great on them! I cooked them for 17 min and got distracted and they are a little overcooked for me so I would check them at 15 (for my oven at least) :)"
