Easy Blueberry Drop Biscuits

Let me tell y’all the crazy story with these blueberry drop biscuits.

So here I am a few months ago: I was getting ready to travel and I wouldn’t be at my apartment for a week or so. A few days before I was scheduled to leave, I made a task of only making meals that would clean out my refrigerator and pantry. Can’t let my food go to waste, right?

I had some Greek yogurt and blueberries that I wanted to get rid of after making a batch of my Frozen Yogurt Bark. Since I didn’t have anything sweet in my kitchen, I just started throwing those ingredients (and a few others) into a bowl; literally not even measuring anything like a lunatic. I figured I could make some sort of cookie.

I baked them in the oven, and audibly gasped when I took them out. Although not a delicious cookie, I somehow Frankenstein’d a biscuit recipe – fluffy, buttery, and slightly sweet. I was so happy!! “Let’s add this to the blog this week!” I said.

*cue car crash sound effect* How can I share this delicious and easy recipe with you when I didn’t measure anything??

I was slightly annoyed (but not too much; I still had these yummy biscuits to munch on.) And resolved to try and remake them when I got back from vacation.

I’ll save you guys the agonizing test process, but after about 3-4 batches; I finally recreated the magic of that fateful evening. So I present to you, the easiest accidental blueberry drop biscuits you’ll ever make!

These are baked until golden brown and the blueberries are soft and juicy. Just a little sweetness from the sugar goes so well with the fruit. Don’t feel intimidated by the fact that you’re making biscuits – this recipe is foolproof and so simple! I also included freezing instructions in the recipe because I have no self-control; I have to freeze most of my bread recipes before I eat them up.

Now, I’m going to bask in these photos and have a few of my biscuits with some green tea for breakfast.
