Red white & Blue Berry Biscuit by Angela Roberts

Hey America, here are some red, white and blue biscuits to celebrate your 237th birthday on July 4th. 

They are fluffy, light and a slight variation on my most favorite buttermilk Southern biscuit.  I added in a touch more flour and a full cup of berries, and extra sugar. They have a bit of crunch on the outside, yet are soft and light on the inside.

I’m not the only one who likes the patriotic twist of red white and blue.  A few years ago  Recipe Girl posted 100 red white and blue dishes,  and 5 red white and blue drinks here. If that’s not enough, there is a red white and blue Pinterest Board.

Two of my favorite red white and blue desserts include this Blackberry Strawberry Tart with Lime Basil and this Blueberry Strawberry Tart.


The Process

You can use frozen berries or fresh berries. Keep in mind that these are not berry muffins and are not intended to be. I make my biscuits in a wooden bowl and I pat them down and cut from the same bowl.   I always cut right from the middle and then cut each biscuit around that center. I can get 12 medium sized biscuits from this recipe.


I will brush with milk and sprinkle a little sugar on them before placing them in the oven, which is why you see the crunchy golden topping.

I understand that Americans eat 150 million hot dogs on July 4th. What will you be eating? Biscuits maybe?

  1. What an awesome idea, Angela. The dough looks beautiful, and I cannot image how delicious these biscuits must be.

    I’m really in the mood for July 4th this year and my party menu just keeps growing…there are so many festive recipes out there to try! Hope you have a safe and fun holiday!


    1. That’s a great question and one I was thinking about myself. Yes, I think I know. Scones are made with regular flour and cream. They are more crumbly. Biscuits are made with soft flour and buttermilk (or milk in some cases). They don’t make much of a crumb. Biscuits can hold meat, cheese, etc. Scones really can’t. At least this is how I see the differences.
