Substitutions + Alternatives

Can I use All-Purpose Flour?

Yes, All-Purpose Flour can be used. Use the same amount that is listed in the ingredients, but swap with all purpose.

Can I use regular dairy?

Feel free to make this recipe your own. I use dairy-free milk, but feel welcome to choose your preferred dairy option without any recipe adjustments. Unless specified otherwise, you have the flexibility to use the milk of your choice for the recipe.

Note: While almond milk is an option, it is less preferred due to its liquid consistency. Consider opting for a milk alternative with a thicker texture.

How To Make Blueberry Pie Biscuits

  1. Get your oven nice and hot by preheating it to 450°F (232°C).
  2. Grab your 9-inch cast iron skillet or 7×10 baking dish and brush it with 1 tablespoon of melted butter to prevent sticking.
  3. No worries if you don’t have buttermilk on hand! Just whisk together some oat milk and 1 tsp vinegar to create a quick and easy buttermilk substitute.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients: flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder. Give it a good whisk to make sure everything is evenly distributed.
  5. Now comes the fun part! Using a pastry cutter or even a fork, cut in your cold butter to the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs.
  6. Pour in the buttermilk and gently stir everything together until just combined. Don’t overmix though, or your biscuits will end up tough.
  7. Here’s a little trick – pop your biscuit dough in the freezer for 20 minutes. This helps the butter stay cold, resulting in flakier biscuits.
  8. Take your chilled dough out of the freezer and grab a large ice cream scoop. Scoop out 6 large biscuit dough balls and place them evenly in your baking dish.
  1. Now for the star of the show – the blueberries! Heap a generous amount of blueberry pie filling on top of each biscuit dough ball.
  1. Bake your Blueberry Pie Biscuits for 20 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and beautiful.
  1. Take your masterpiece out of the oven and let it cool down for a few minutes before digging in.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Nutty Delights: Add some chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts to your biscuit dough for an extra crunch and a burst of nutty flavor.
  • Fruity Twist: Don’t limit yourself to blueberries! This recipe is super versatile and works great with other fruit pie fillings like cherry, apple, or peach.
  • Spice Things Up: Want to add a little warmth and complexity to your biscuits? Try throwing in a pinch of nutmeg or ginger to the dry ingredients during step 4.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use fresh blueberries instead of pie filling?

Of course! Fresh blueberries are always a great option. Just toss them in a bowl with a little bit of sugar and lemon juice before adding them to your biscuit dough.

How do I store leftover Blueberry Pie Biscuits?

These biscuits are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. You can also freeze them for longer storage. Simply place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for up to 3 months. Then, reheat them in a preheated oven at 350°F (177°C) for about 10 minutes, or until warmed through.
