Plum & Pear Pie

Because the “Walnut and Pear Salad” that didn’t go down well with the kids, I promised that my next foodie post would be something sweet. So here goes…

@ Mrs. Twinkle

The Pastry
400g flour
1 tsp salt
200g butter
4-6 tbsp sugar
1 grated lemon
2 eggs
Roll out 2/3 of the pastry (the rest is for the top of the pie) and put into the pie dish.

The Filling
4 plums
2 pears

@ Mrs. Twinkle

The Crumble
45g flour
230g sugar
50g butter
1 sachet vanilla suger
1 tbsp cornflour

Preheat the oven at 200°C. Sprinkle ground hazelnuts over the base, cover it with layers of fruit and crumble. Roll out the leftover pastry and cut into strips. Brush it with the paste and sprinkle with sugar.

The Paste
1 egg
1 tbsp water
1 pinch of salt

Bake for 10 minutes at 200°C then turn the heat down to 175°C and bake for 40 minutes, turn the heat off and leave in the oven for further 20 minutes.

… the result was a lot better, I got a thumbs up from all three of them.
