Dried Blueberry Biscuits

[Photograph: Donna Currie]

You could use pretty much any dried fruit in this—cranberries, chopped apricots, cherries, whatever you like. There are many different methods for shaping biscuits, from drop biscuits that aren't shaped at all, to gentle patting and prodding to rolling them with a rolling pin. These use the rolling pin method. I like this method for biscuits that have large pieces of butter. Buy rolling the dough, the butter flattens out, just like in pie crust, and the folding creates flaky layers.
