Buried in berries
Summertime has finally sweetened. The hot days have slowed our pace, and the evenings are now soft and warm. It can only mean one thing … berry season! Michigan blueberries are ripe and ready, and strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are plentiful in the farmers markets and grocery stores. Nothing is better than fresh berries, except maybe some berry delicious treats from Sweet Ali’s Gluten Free Bakery.
Sweet Ali’s newest summer sweets are raspberry bars and berry crumble. And, yes, they are as yummy as they sound! The raspberry bars have a tender shortbread crust, raspberry filling, and an almond crumble top. They are now a summer staple in the Sweet Ali’s case, so please stop by the bakery to try one. With its fresh berries and oatmeal crumble top, the berry crumble is frozen fresh so that you can bake it at home whenever you are ready to savor the berry best of summer.
But what about something for those of us who like to get a little creative in our own kitchens? Try this delicious twist to a favorite Sweet Ali’s mix. Substitute 1 cup of blackberries for the corn in Sweet Ali’s cornbread muffin mix recipe and serve with honey butter (1 stick of softened butter with 3 tablespoons honey) for a summer treat that is both sweet and savory. And don’t forget pie! Sweet Ali’s pie crust and pie dough are frozen fresh and ready to be the pastry for all your favorite family recipes.
Sweetened by the summer sun, berries are made only sweeter by Sweet Ali’s. Stop by the bakery to enjoy some of summer’s most delicious gluten-free berry treats. And savor the season’s slow pace, warm nights, and sunshine … the berry best of summertime.
