Crumble Pastry

This week my book covered crumble pastry which is a pastry that is crumbled.  I got excited about making this crumble as it as it contains yummy ingredients being ground almonds and cinnamon. IMG_4440 To make the crumble mixture measure out 150g plain flour, 75g light brown sugar, 75g granulated sugar, 150g softened butter, 150g ground almonds, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and a pinch of salt.  Place all the ingredients on your work surface and work the ingredients together until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. For the filling peel 3 pears and slice them, then cover with lemon juice (this stops the pears from going brown).  Mix together 60g castor sugar and ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, roll the sliced pears in the sugar mixture.  Place the pears into individual oven proof bowls and add a few red grapes to each bowl.  Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture and bake in the oven for 20 minutes on 180°C.  Serve warm with custard, cream or ice cream.  Yum yum….. I’m really enjoying following my new book and although I have made some of the pastries before it’s been fun trying out new fillings with them.  Next week I’m making strawberry fritters something     I haven’t made before.
