Lily Barnes is our 10-year-old resident kid baker. Each month she shares an original recipe that kids can make at home with their parents, plus a few behind-the-scenes tips and tricks to make your treat extra special. Here is Lily’s recipe for Blueberry Biscuits:


I wanted to make this to try something different than my cake and cookie desserts. I like biscuits and I think kids will like to add their favorite fruit baked inside and add jam, butter, or honey on top for an extra yummy taste.—Lily
