Blueberry Biscuits

These little nuggets appeared on the menu at Burger King in late 2010.  Not sure how long they stayed there but most of the reviews were pretty bad.  You got 4 mini biscuits and a vanilla dipping sauce for a dollar.  We can do much better by making them at home with this copycat recipe.

Burger King Copycat Recipe

Makes about 1 1/2 Dozen

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fresh grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup buttermilk
2/4 cup unthawed frozen blueberries (keep frozen right up until adding to dough)

Mix 2 cups of the flour with the sugar, baking powder, lemon peel, salt, and soda in a large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix egg and buttermilk then stir into the flour mixture. Stir in the frozen blueberries.

Sprinkle remaining flour on the countertop. Scrape dough out onto the flour; flour fingers and gently knead 6 or 7 times, just until dough begins to hold together. Pat dough into a rectangle or round 1/2-inch thick. Cut out rounds with a floured 2-inch cutter or glass. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in center of a preheated 400° oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
