This recipe is made with Bisquick, but its tastes are so elevated and dynamic! The mix is combined with cream, honey, and butter, making sweet, flavorful, and tender drop biscuit topping for the cobbler.
The blueberries are then flavored with lemon juice and zest, cinnamon, vanilla and almond extract, and sugar, making them incredibly flavorful!
Bisquick: Bisquick as so much of what you need built right in. It has your flour, leavening agents, fat, and some sugar.
Cream: I have opted for cream instead of milk because it has a thicker texture and more flavor.
Honey: I use both honey and sugar to sweeten the biscuits. Honey adds more depth of flavor and moisture. My only gripe with Bisquick is that it can be too dry; honey helps combat that.
Blueberries: It wouldn’t be a blueberry cobbler without blueberries! I use fresh, but frozen would work as well. Just defrost before using them.
Lemon: Blueberry and lemon are a match made in heaven. The acidity in the lemon
Cinnamon: cinnamon adds a little heat and spice to this recipe, which helps it turn into a really dynamic dish.
How to make this recipe:

- Serve with ice cream!
Can you use frozen blueberries?
