Blueberry Pull-Apart Muffins

I love baking, but sometimes I don’t really feel like all-out baking. You know, where you pull out the stand mixer, flour, sugar, eggs and end up with tons of dishes. Don’t get me wrong, it’s rewarding, but when I want something baked and quick, I reach for Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits.

There is something about their simplicity that I love. They can take on savory flavors like in my Cheesy Garlic Bites or they can be baked up with sugar and fruit like in these Blueberry Pull-Apart Muffins.

The concept for these muffins is like monkey bread. You cut each biscuit and toss it in sugar and butter. Then, you layer it in muffin cups.

I added some lemon zest and fresh blueberries because I love the combination. But you could layer in apples, bananas, raisins, coconut, pineapple, nuts — be creative and go with what you love.

Happy baking!
