Crumble and strawberries (auntie’s recipe)

Auntie’s crumble recipe
Here’s a fabulous crumble recipe my sister gave me (my daughter’s “zietta” – auntie) that I would like to share with you.
It’s easy to prepare and children love it (ok, it’s not exactly a low-fat cake, but then again, strawberries, rich in vitamin C, somehow make up for the butter, don’t they?)
2 pears
2 apples
the juice of half a lemon
200 g of softened butter
100 g of flour
100 g of “digestive” buiscuits
80 g of sugar cane
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25/30 minutes
Pre-heat the oven (180C°) and butter a low pan (ø about 20-22 cm).
Peel the pears and the apples and cut them into little pieces. Then cover them with lemon juice.

Crumble preparation: take digestive buiscuites and turn them into crumbles (a little advice: if you own one, use a mixer like “kitchen aid”).

Mix flour, sugar and the butter (cut into little pieces) in a bowl and work them into dough using your fingertips until you obtain a granular texture. Add the buiscuits and keep working.

Place the crumbles on the fruit, place the pan into the oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes (according to your oven) until a golden crust appears on top.

Serve warm with fresh strawberries cut into little pieces aside.
