These blackberry biscuits are simple to put together any time of the day - soft, tender biscuits that are bursting with berries, and topped with a sweet and savory brown butter glaze.

There is pretty much one reason, and one reason only why I made these biscuits. I am completely, overly, ridiculously obsessed to the max with brown butter on anything right now!
Even better if that brown butter is sweet and savory, obviously.
Drop biscuits were one of the first things that I ever started baking, probably for obvious reasons - it was basically something I knew I couldn't possibly screw up. One bowl, multiple options for add ins, super quick for breakfast or dinner. Every home-baker's quick and to the table dream!
I chose blackberries for these biscuits because I feel like poor blackberries always get left out of my life. I use blueberries, and strawberries, you name it, and blackberries are always so tart and juicy and delicious and why am I not using them in my baking more?!
So, the other day, when I contemplated my blackberry-less life in Target....and my kids were like, mom why are you staring at the fruit like that?? I decided that these berries would be even better with browned butter, because like I said before it pretty much needs to be on everything.
There are a lot of flavors going on in these biscuits, and let me tell you, it just works. Tart blackberries, zesty lemon to keep them fresh and perky little guys, cinnamon to give them that warm feel, then that sweet and savory browned butter glaze that is so nutty and delicious.
Nothing is better than warm biscuits out of the oven, unless they have fruit in them and a healthy brown butter coating.
I'm beginning to wonder how many times I've said "brown butter" today.
I'm also not going to tell you how many of these I devoured.
