For the Biscuits:

  • 8 count can jumbo buttermilk biscuits
  • 4 TBS unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

For the Blueberries:

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries (can sub fresh)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 TBS cornstarch
  • 1 TBS water
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 TBS powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


For the Biscuits:

  • Add the melted butter to a small bowl. Add the sugar to a small bowl.
  • Dip each uncooked biscuit into the melted butter all over, then dip them into the sugar, tossing the sugar over the top to coat them completely.
  • Place 4 of the biscuits in the air fryer, and air fry at 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for 6-8 minutes, until the biscuits are lightly golden and cooked throughout. **Cut one open to see if they are cooked through, mine have been a little doughy still at 6 minutes.
  • Remove the biscuits from the air fryer and set aside. Repeat with the remaining biscuits.

For the Blueberries:

  • Add the frozen blueberries, half cup of water, sugar, and lemon juice to a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the blueberries begin to boil, whisk together the cornstarch and remaining water in a small bowl. Then pour it into the blueberries, and stir it in.
  • Cook stirring constantly until the blueberries are thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the fresh blueberries. (They really help the texture).

For the Whipped Cream:

  • In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, or a large bowl with a hand mixer. Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk together over medium to high speed until the whipped cream has soft peaks.

For the Blueberry Shortcake Assembly:

  • Place one biscuit on a plate and cut it in half.
  • Top the bottom half of the biscuit with some blueberries, and whipped cream, and then the top half of the biscuit. Enjoy immediately.
