Apple and Rhubard Pie

Karen Martini made this pie on Better Homes and Gardens and I have to say it was yummy and the easiest form of pastry I have ever known, no rolling!!  And since my MIL brings me round rhubarb from her garden constantly it is a great dessert to whip up!

3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, sliced
5 stalks rhubarb, trimmed, slice on the angle
120g brown sugar
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp ground cinnamon
225g plain flour
30g corn flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
125g caster sugar
140g butter, softened
1 egg

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees, grease and line a 22cm round spring form tin
  • Put apple, rhubarb, brown sugar, zest, juice and half of the cinnamon into a pan and cook for 5-10 mins or until tender.  Set aside to cool
  • Put flour, cornflour, baking powder and remaining cinnamon into a food processor
  • Add the caster sugar and butter and mix, then add the egg and mix to form a dough
  • Using your hands press the dough into the bottom and sides of the tin
  • Top with the fruit
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until light golden
