Have some blueberries in the fridge? Or any berries for that matter? Mix up this incredibly quick and easy 4-ingredient recipe and enjoy!
- 125g plain flour
- 50g caster sugar plus an extra 2tbsp
- 100g cold butter, cut into several chunks
- 150g fresh blueberries
Preheat the oven to 180°C (Gas Mark 4 / 350°F). Combine the plain flour and caster sugar in a large bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Press about two-thirds of the shortbread mixture onto a lined baking tray or loaf pan. Be sure to press it in firmly to help it hold together. Scatter the blueberries across the shortbread, and sprinkle over the remaining breadcrumb-like shortbread mixture.
Top with a couple of tablespoons of sugar, and bake for around 30 minutes, until the shortbread is light golden brown and some of the berries have released their juices. Allow to cool completely, and then cut into squares with a pizza cutter.
