Blueberry Cream Biscuits With Blueberry Sauce-
I had some blueberries and I kept waiting for the right recipe to materialize. Oh yes, it did! Recipe below. It was really fast getting it into the oven. The sauce was good, but I did add some nutmeg, a squirt of lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.
I had already cut into it before the photo!
