orange glazed blueberry biscuits

orange glazed blueberry drop biscuits


3 3/4 cups Trader Joe's buttermilk baking mix
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) softened salted butter
1 1/2 cups cold milk
3 tablespoons orange zest
2 cups blueberries

Add baking mix and butter to a large bowl.  Using a pastry knife, cut butter into the mix until lumps resemble coarse meal (the butter can be pinched with your fingers.)  Add orange zest, mix together then add milk.  Mix again and gently stir in blueberries.  Using an ice cream scoop, drop dough onto a baking pan. Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. 


Stir together 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons orange juice.  Brush over baked and cooled biscuits.  Serve warm. 
Lazy doggies by me while I chat on the phone with Carrie ~ 57 minutes.
Our geese have returned and made themselves at home again.  I cleaned up the backyard but Wayne-O was right last fall when he said 'pay me now or pay me later' ~ there was minimal work to do.
Our new addition ~ three finches from Big Daddy and Brother Bo.  They are adorable and they sound so sweet and lovely. 

Let your mind be quiet, realizing the beauty of the world, and the immense, the boundless treasures that it holds in store.  All that you have within you, all that your heart desires, all that your nature so specially fits for you ~ that, or the counterpart of it waits embedded in the great Whole, for you.  Edward Carpenter
