These scrumptious Blackberry Bites make a perfect teatime treat. Recipe devised by Kate Morris and Sally Brown.
You will need:
- 125g self raising flour
- 25g butter
- 25g caster sugar
- 80-100ml buttermilk
- 50g (16) fresh blackberries
Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
Before cooking, wash your hands and put an apron on.
Weigh and measure the ingredients.
Put the flour and butter in the bowl and ‘tickle’ the ingredients together by rubbing them between your fingers until crumbly. Stir in the sugar.
Gently mix the blackberries into the crumbly mixture with the fork.
Add some, but not all of the buttermilk and stir. You only need to add liquid until the mixture starts to stick together. Try not to add too much buttermilk, or the mixture will become too sticky to handle.
Sprinkle some flour onto your work surface.
Turn out the mixture onto the mat and gently make a ball with the dough.
Gently flatten the dough with your hands until about 1.5cm thick.
Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough and put each one on the baking tray.
You will need to ask a grown-up to help with this part. Place in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (fan oven)/220ºC/Gas 7 for 10 - 12 minutes until golden on the top.
Try serving one per person with extra blackberries or with yogurt on the top.
