Rhubarb, almonds and pears pie

Red rhubarb is finally at the season so I can bake one of the pies I have been thinking about since last summer.
A few comments before I share the recipe. It may be the simplest recipe I shared here, so don’t hesitate to cook it even if you are not an experienced baker. Then, it’s hard to define exact measurements as if you prefer, for example, more almonds, you can use more almonds and no one will judge you.
And also: you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen cutting rhubarb into a pattern, just do it in the way you like. (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).


Ingredience
250 g of all purpose flour
1 egg
150 g of unsalted butter
2 tbs of powdered sugar
pinch of salt
1.5 tbs of very cold water
150g of marzipan (substitution: almonds paste with added sugar)
3-4 tbs of blanched almonds
3 middle sized sweet pears
5-6 rhubarb stalks
1 tbs of vanilla sugar
Directions
1. Mix flour with an egg, sugar, salt, soft butter (take it from the fridge in advance) in a big bowl. Knead properly, make a ball, wrap it into a plastic foil and put it into the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
2. Roll the cooled dough. Make a slice big enough to cover a round baking form. Carefully put the dough into the baking form greased with butter. Prick the dough bottom with a fork.
3. Roll the marzipan into a circle and put it into the baking form.
4. Add a layer of blanched almonds and thinly sliced pears.
5. Cover the pie with a layer of rhubarb and sprinkle vanilla sugar above.
6. Bake for aprox. 45 min in the oven preheated to 185C. Rhubarb should become totally soft.

🇸🇰 Rebarborový koláč s mandľami a hruškami

Tento rok sa sezóna rebarbory začala trošku neskôr a prvú červenú rebarboru sa mi podarilo kúpiť len minulý týždeň. Recept už som mal vymyslený, takže program na sobotné poobedie bol vybavený.

Pár poznámok: v prípade tohto receptu sa ťažko odhadujú presne pomery plnky: môžete toho dať viac alebo menej, záleží na tom, na čo máte väčšiu chuť. A samozrejme, nemusíte tráviť hodinu v kuchyni krájaním a ukladaním rebarbory na koláč.

Ingrediencie

250 g hladkej špaldovej múky

1 vajce

150 g masla

2 pl práškového cukru

štipka soli

1,5čl studenej vody

150g marcipán (mal som hotový od Dr.Oetker)

3-4 pl lyžice sekaných mandlí (alebo aj viac)

3 stredne veľké sladké hrušky, nakrájané na tenké plátky

5-6 stoniek rebarbory

1pl vanilkového cukru

 Postup

  1. Vo veľkej mise zmiešame všetky ingrediencie na cesto, vypracujeme cesto (nemusíme dlho miesiť) a necháme ho vychladnúť v chladničke aspoň polhodiny.
  2. vychladnuté cesto rozvaľkáme a premiestnime do vymastenej okrúhlej formy. Spodok párkrát prepichneme vidličkou.
  3. marcipán rozvaľkáme do veľkosti formy a opatrne prenesieme do formy s cestom
  4. pridáme nasekané mandle, hrušky a rebarboru.
  5. rebarborovú vrstvu pocukrujeme vanilkovým cukrom.
  6. Pečieme cca 40 až 45 min v rúre predhriatej na 185C (rebarbora musí úplne zmäknúť).
