Apple and Rhubarb Crumble Pie


New beginnings in life can be challenging, but always bring good things too. Best thing that happened to me in this new chapter of my life is that I got bonus: 3 beautiful step-daughters... So when my 2 sons and my 3 step-daughters visiting, it makes my dear B. and me very happy.
The other day, when we had a get-together, I made this pie... I loved the contrast between soft apple-rhubarb filling and crispy crumbly crust. Girls loved it too...One of the best I made so far!

Ingredients:
Crust-
250 g flour
125 g almonds, ground (I used walnuts)
125 g golden caster sugar
250 g butter, diced, chilled
Filling-
450 g apples, diced
300 g rhubarb, diced
80 g golden caster sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs semolina
Topping-
1 tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method:
First make filling; Cook apples and rhubarb with sugar, until soft. Let it cool, then add semolina and cinnamon.
Prehet oven to 180*C; prepare a cake / pie tin.
Process all ingredients for the crust until crumbly. Spoon 2/3 of this into a cake tin; press with spoon making sure you make a 'wall' to hold the filling. Put filling onto it, then add the rest of crumble on top. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve with double cream.



Hrskava Pita sa Rabarbarbarom i Jabukama

Novi pocetci u zivotu mogu biti izazivajuci, ali uvijek nose sa sobom i dobre stvari. Jedna od najboljih stvari koja se meni desila u mom novom poglavlju je ta da sam dobila 3 divne pastorke / pokcerke... Kada moja 2 sina i moje 3 nove kcerke dodju u posjetu,  moj dragi B. i ja smo jako sretni.
Neki dan sam za njihovu posjetu pravila ovu divnu pitu. Dopao mi se kontrast u okusima - mekani filing i hrskava okolina. Svidjelo se i djevojkama...Jedna od najboljih hrskavih pita koje sam do sada pravila!

Potrebno:
Hrskava podloga-
250 gr brasna
125 gr badema, mljevenih (ja sam koristila orahe)
125 gr sitnog secera ('zlatnog' po mogucnosti)
250 gr maslaca, rezanog, rashladjenog
Fil-
450 gr jabuka, sjecene na kockice
300 gr rabarbare, sjeckane
80 gr 'zlatnog' secera
1/2 k cimeta
1 K griza / krupice
Posip-
1 K braon secera
1/2 k cimeta

Nacin:
Najprije napravite fil; stavite jabuke, rabarbaru i secer da se kuhaju dok ne omeksa. Ostavite prohladiti, pa umijesajte cimet i griz.
Ukljucite rernu na 180*C; pripremite obruc za kolac ili pitu.
Stavite sve sastojke za hrskavu podlogu u elektricnu sjeckalicu i ukljucite dok se ne pocnu stvarati mrvice. 2/3 od ove smjese utisnite u kalup, vodeci racuna da napravite 'zid' za fil. Ubacite fil, zatim pospite preostalim mrvicama po povrsini. Pomijesajte secer i cimet pa i ovime pospite odozgo.
Pecite oko 45-50 minuta. Sluzite sa 'duplim' slatkim vrhnjem.

  5. Kako je to lepo kad pored sinova dobiješ i kćeri...i ja sam, kao i ti, dobila dve odrasle i udate kćeri, jedna od njih mi je podarila i troje prelepih unučića i zaista se svi lepo slažemo, čak i njihova mama, koju ja vrlo poštujem...Kolač ti je izuzetno lep i neka vam je prijatno a svima vama želim lep i srećan početak...sreća dođe kad joj se najmanje nadaš.

  15. Hi Jasna, long time no seen. I see that you are surviving ;) And so happy that you haven't stopped blogging. Just got back from Croatia, again. I feel like it's my second home there. I'll be checking your recipes. All the best!

  16. OK, I'll make this with plums for the weekend. I guess you add semolina to thicken the filling and to make the whole process faster (skipping prolonged cooking of the fruit)? Thanks.
