Berries With Cookie Crumble

12 September 2010

I've tried another new desert just a few days ago. I saw it on Flavours magazine. Instead of just strawberries, I added blueberries because I don't have enough strawberries. I'll never buy the local Cameron strawberries from Tesco again - half of them were spoiled within 2 days.

Recipe: Berries With Cookie Crumble (adapted from Flavours Sep-Oct 2010 issue)
4 servings

400g strawberries, hulled and halved (I used both strawberries and blueberries)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1 tbsp brown sugar

6-8 cookies, crushed (any type of cookies will do - I used a mixture of digestive and chocolate chip cookies)
50g butter, softened
2 tbsp caster sugar
4tbsp plain flour

To prepare the berries:
In a mixing bowl, combine the berries, vinegar and sugar; chill.

To bake:
Preheat oven to 210 degree C.
In a mixing bowl, combine the crumble ingredients.
Divide the berries among four heat-proof ramekins and top with the crumble.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until top is golden brown.
Serve with vanilla or strawberry ice-cream is desired.

Who says this desert can't be eaten at the stroke of midnight? *grin
