Instructions

For the Easy BooBerry Biscuits:

  • Preheat oven to 450ºF, line a baking sheet w/ parchment paper or a silpat pop the stick of butter into the freezer, and dust your counter or a very large cutting board with flour. 
  • In a medium metal bowl, whisk 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar until well mixed. Add the bowl to the freezer until the oven preheats.
  • Using a box grater, carefully shred the cold stick of butter into the flour mixture then, using your hands, gently work the butter through the dough until there are small pea-size pieces of dough throughout and the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add in frozen berries, pour in the buttermilk and, using your hands or a wooden spoon, stir to combine until the mixture *just* comes together. DO NOT OVERMIX. Note: The dough may still be a little crumbly at this point, but that’s ok! You’ll fix that in the next step. 
  • Dump the dough onto your well-floured surface, flour your hands, and sprinkle the top of the dough w/ a little bit of flour. Gently knead and lightly work the dough until it pulls together and becomes manageable, sprinkling in more flour as needed if it is too sticky. Once the dough comes together, fold it in half over itself, then repeat this step 5-6 more times, but taking care not to overwork the dough.
  • Continue using your hands to flatten to ¾” thick and dip your ghost cookie cutter into some of the excess flour. Press the cookie cutter into the dough and transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet. Once you have cut as many BooBerry Biscuits as possible from the dough continue to gently rework and flatten the dough, making as many biscuits as you can. 
  • Pop the biscuits back in the freezer for about 10 minutes or so while you clean up the mess and make the icing. This will allow the butter to harden back up so your biscuits will be as tall and as fluffy as possible.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Once cool to the touch, dip the tops of the boo berry biscuits into the glaze and use the chocolate chips &/or gel to add eyes and a mouth to the biscuits to make the faces of the ghosts. 
  • These are best when served immediately!

For the BooBerry Biscuit Glaze:

  • Mix powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and 1 tbsp spoon of milk until smooth. If icing is too thick, add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
