Make the Glaze

  1. Muddle the blueberries and lemon juice in a small bowl.  If you want a smooth glaze without flecks of blueberry, strain through a small sieve. Add the blueberry-lemon mixture to sugar and mix until there are no lumps. The glaze should be thick but pourable. Adjust consistency as needed by adding more or less sugar or lemon juice. Drizzle the glaze over the warm/cooled biscuits.
