A delicate Berry (partridgeberry,blueberry or cranberry) Tea Biscuit that is very moist and melts in your mouth! FREEZES BEAUTIFULLY!
Time to stock the freezer with Yummy Treats! The holidays are on the way and these Partridgeberry Orange Tea Biscuits freeze beautifully, they are ready for christmas morning, company, or with a great cup of tea! Full of partridgeberries, with a hint of orange, these biscuits absolutely melt in your mouth.
The first time I made these Partridgeberry Orange Tea Biscuits, I tried one that was still quite warm out of the oven and didn’t really like them…but then, once they cooled completely, I could not stop eating them! They are super fluffy, super moist and super tasty! Bake a batch today and pop them in the freezer.
Partidgeberry Orange Tea Biscuits
- 1 can mandarin oranges, drained and juice reserved
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 TBSP vanilla
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 3 TBSP baking powder
- 1 cup partridgeberries, fresh or frozen
Egg Wash: 1 egg and 1 TBSP water, mixed together and beaten with a fork to combine.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Drain mandarin oranges. Set juice aside to use later in recipe. Mash mandarin oranges. Set aside.
Cream sugar and butter until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix until combined. Stir in reserved mandarin juice and mashed mandarin oranges.
In separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Gently mix into wet ingredients until just combined. Add partridgeberries and combine. DO NOT OVERMIX!
On a floured surface, gently roll out dough to 1 inch thickness. Cut into shapes and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash. Cook at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, until brown on the bottom and cooked through. Serve with butter or just as is! Enjoy 🙂 Makes 24 Biscuits.
NOTE: If you don’t have partridgeberries, use either cranberries or blueberries! Both would be delicious! Chop the cranberries if they are big. I used frozen partridgeberries and used them straight from the the freezer. If you use blueberries, do not thaw! My biscuits were a little pale on the top, so I popped them under the broiler for couple of seconds until I got the desired color. Let cool completely before freezing.
