Gingered Rhubarb Apple Crisp In Pastry Cups
Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:

For the fruit

  • 2 c. rhubarb, diced
  • 3 large apples, peeled, cored and cut in bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 tablespoon crystallized ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon flour

For the crisp

  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 4 tbs. vegan margarine, cold, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 c. oatmeal

For the pastry cups (these are optional the crisp is lovely served in bowls also)

  • 6 frozen (vegan) pastry sheets (12 cm X 12 cm) to make 4 pastry cups.

Directions:

For the pastry cups:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 (C).
  2. Thaw the frozen pastry sheets.
  3. When they are thawed and workable, cut 2 in half.
  4. I found that it takes 1 and a half sheets per pastry tin to make the cups.
  5. So, reform the 1&1/2 sheets into a ball and roll if out (dust your workspace with flour).
  6. Place the pastry in a greased and floured tin.
  7. Put a layer of baking paper over the pastry and fill part way with beans or rice.
  8. To “blind bake” the pastry.
  9. Do this for each of the pastry cups.
  10. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
