Apple and pear Crumble

This recipe isn't suitable for high cholesterol people. It has a very high butter , that's why it's so tasty. Butter quantity is no wonder. It comes from a breadcrumbs box I bought when I was living in France. French people don't understand life without butter, lots and looooooooots of butter. I've made some variations, for example, the original recipe used only apples.

Apple and pear Crumble

Ingredients:
  • 5 medium apples
  • 4 medium pears, green
  • 150 gr. breadcrumbs
  • 300 gr. butter, romm temperature
  • 225 gr. sugar
  • 120 gr. raw almond meal
  • juice from one orange
  • 45 gr. flour
Method:
  1. Peel and slice apples and pears. Put them in a big oven proof baking dish. Sprinkle them with the orange juice, so they don't turn black. Set aside.
  2. Beat 200 gr. butter with 150 gr. sugar, until it turns white and fluffy.
  3. Spread this mixture over fruit, pressing well.
  4. In a separated bowl, mix 100 gr. butter with the 75 gr. remaining sugar. Add flour, breadcrumbs, almond meal until you obtain a crumbled dough.
  5. Pour this mixture over butter-sugar mixture, pressing again.
  6. Bake at 180ยบ C in a preheated oven for 50 min or until fruit is cooked and the top has a nice golden color.
  7. Serve hot. If you don't have health problems, add a scoop vanille ice.
