Almond and Blackberry Biscuit Squares Recipe

Almond and Blackberry Biscuit Squares - motherhooddiaries

As you know, in the UK, we are currently enjoying the peak of blackberry season right now, so I am going on a rampage, creating all sorts of blackberry recipes for the family to enjoy. So far, I have four delicious dessert recipes that you can try at home, one of which are these awesome nutty Almond and Blackberry Biscuit Squares.

This time, I’ve decided to create a biscuit recipe, as we found a ‘secret passageway’ (as the boys call it) on the way to the park that housed enough blackberries to feed a family of six! We had some ground almonds in the cupboard and so I just made a simple biscuit dough with flour, dairy free margarine, egg and brown sugar. I added the ground almonds and gently mixed in two-thirds of the blackberries. I then laid the mix down on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and decorated the top with the rest of the blackberries. Cooking time takes about an 1 hour, so leave plenty of time to make these, possibly start preparing this biscuit squares while you’re making dinner.

These are perfect to have with a hot beverage or if you fancy something lighter, juice or lemonade works just as well. You’ll find these biscuit squares so almondy and light that the blackberries add that perfect zing of flavour which enriches the overall palate. Be careful not to overwork the dough or overcook the mix as both lead to biscuits a touch on the dry side.

Ingredients
  1. 250g all purpose flour
  2. 100g ground almonds
  3. 200g dairy free margarine
  4. 2 medium eggs
  5. 150g brown sugar
  6. As many blackberries as you can muster - about 2-3 punnets worth
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160F/Gas Mark 4
  2. Place the flour, margarine, ground almonds, brown sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl and add to a food mixer - beat on low. Hands work just as well if you don't have a mixer.
  3. Take the bowl off the mixer and gently stir in two thirds of the blackberries until mixed.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the mix over the paper (about 1 inch thick)
  5. Scatter the top with the remainder of the blackberries and place in the middle of the oven to bake for about 1 hour - or until the mix is moist but not wet. You can poke a fork in the middle to check
  6. Allow to cool slightly and then divide into squares
Notes
  1. Serve with more blackberries and a hot beverage!
