If you love buttery, flakey homemade biscuits with a nice layer of sweet and tart berry jam, you’ll love these Glazed Berry Drop Biscuits!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 23 tablespoons milk (add by the teaspoon)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and prepare a 9 by 9 inch baking pan by spraying with nonstick spray.  You could also use a 10 inch round skillet or pie dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together.
  3. Add cubed butter and cut it into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until you have pea-sized flour-coated bits of butter.  Stir in berries so they are coated in flour.
  4. Measure out 3/4 cups milk, and stir the vanilla extract into the milk.  Then slowly add the milk mixture into the mixing bowl, stirring as you go until a sticky dough forms.
  5. Using a spring-loaded scoop (about 1/4 cup size) or two large spoons, drop the biscuit dough into the prepared baking dish.  This recipe will make nine biscuits.
  6. Bake the biscuits for 18-20 minutes, or until they are fluffy and just turning golden on the tops.
  7. Remove from the oven and then let cool for 5-10 minutes before adding the glaze.
  8. To make the glaze, whisk powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of milk in a small bowl.  Keep adding more milk by the teaspoon as needed until the glaze runs off a fork in a continuous ribbon.  Drizzle the glaze over the top of the biscuits and serve.
  9. These Glazed Berry Drop Biscuits will keep for 3 days covered at room temperature, but the glaze will soften once they are covered.
