Warm lemon blackberry drop biscuits with homemade butter —Sarah | Wisconsin from Scratch

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 ounces cold homemade butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup blackberries
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder until well mixed.
  3. Cut the butter into very small pieces and add to the bowl. Using your hands, work the butter into the flour until the pieces are small and the mixture has a grainy texture.
  4. Stir in the buttermilk, lemon zest, and blackberries and mix until a cohesive dough has formed.
  5. Using two spoons, drop dough into approximately 2” diameter mounds on the prepared baking sheet - you should end up with about 9 biscuits total.
  6. Bake biscuits until they are just starting to brown on the tops, about 15-20 minutes. Serve warm with plenty of butter.

Make sure the butter is icy-cold when you work it into the dough. The recipe could use a bit of salt. Purple biscuits!
