Blueberry Biscuits

I had some extra blueberries lying around and I'm not a blueberry eater, but I will eat a dessert or dish with blueberries in it! So I quickly searched for a recipe with blueberries that wasn't absolutely FULL of sugar. This recipe is it! There isn't much sugar, but the blueberries add a sweetness that doesn't bog you down after you eat it. My favorite! (The original recipe has a compote to go with it)

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Sift together the dry ingredients. Add the blue berries and mix. Add in the cream gently until the mixture is just mixed. You want a nice lumpy batter, which makes the biscuits light and fluffy!

3. On lightly floured parchment paper, knead the dough about four times into an 8" square or rectangle. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough into 8-12 pieces leaving the bottom of the dough intact.

4. Place the parchment paper and dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
