We used the same technique of shaking the tree but were smarter about not standing, kneeling or walking in the berries - Or so we thought! Gramps got the messiest, followed by me, then the kids. But what does one DO with so many berries? We made a bunch of jam that last go around... So I began the search!
I actually found a really good Bisquick scone recipe - and substituted Mulberries into it. They look, smell and more importantly taste REALLY awesome. It is actually a really easy recipe too:
Mulberry Bisquick Scone Recipe
3 cups Bisquick
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 cup fresh Mulberries
1/4 cup milk
1 egg, well beaten
2 tbsp. Sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In medium bowl combine the baking mix, 2 tablespoons sugar and the berries.
Pour milk in measuring cup. Add the eggs to the milk and mix well with a fork . Stir the liquid into the baking mix until moistened. (Dough will be crumbly - I even debated adding a tad more milk and may do so with the next batch.)
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured baking sheet and pat into a 9 inch round. Brush the dough with the beaten egg, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Cut the round into 12 wedges. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden. (I actually had to add another 5 minutes for the right "look". That could be my oven or it could be the moister berries.)
I actually needed to re-cut the circle after baking since it baked "back together" too...
Serve immediately with butter, jam or the more traditional clloted cream.
