Individual rhubarb and raspberry crumble pies

rhubarb raspberry crumble pies

Serves 12

1 x 320g sheet of shortcrust pastry

300g rhubarb, roughly chopped

80g sugar
1 eating apple, peeled and diced

200g frozen raspberries

For the crumble topping:

140g plain flour
85g butter, chilled
50g light brown muscovado sugar

50g chopped nuts
Zest of 1 orange

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 ̊C/150 ̊C fan/gas mark 3.
  2. Grease a standard muffin tin and with oil or melted butter, then dust with flour.
  3. Unroll the pastry. Use a pastry cutter slightly larger then the wells of the muffin tin to cut out 12 rounds.
  4. Carefully line each well of the muffin tin with a circle of pastry, gently pushing the pastry down right into the bottom corners. Line each one with a square of parchment paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and set aside.
  5. To make the filling, place the rhubarb in a pot. Add the sugar and cook over a medium heat for five minutes until about halfway cooked. Remove from the heat and add the diced apple and frozen raspberries. Spoon the mixture into the pastry cases.
  6. To make the crumble, rub the flour and butter together with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, chopped nuts and orange zest.
  7. Scatter the crumble over the mini pies and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
