This dessert is bursting with the sour taste of rhubarb against the sweetness of blueberries. With almonds perched on top, you’ll get a perfect blend of soft and crunchy. Serve warm with ice cream, or cold with a hot drink.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch rhubarb
  • 200 grams blueberries
  • 4 tablespoons sugar (depending on taste and on the acidity of the rhubarb)
  • 280 grams sugar
  • 245 grams butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 400 grams flour
  • salt
  • chopped almonds

Directions

  1. Peel the rhubarb, cut into pieces, and pour in a small saucepan.
  2. Add the blueberries, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water.
  3. Cover and cook over low heat. Stir occasionally until water is evaporated. Set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  5. In a bowl, mix butter cut into small cubes, 210 grams of sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  6. Add beaten yolk.
  7. Stir and gradually add flour to get a dough.
  8. Take half the dough and press it to the bottom of a flexible 20 x 20 centimeter square mold (this is not a dough that should be rolled out).
  9. Prick with a fork, and chill for 30 minutes.
  10. Bake the dough for 20 minutes.
  11. Spread the compote over the cooked dough.
  12. Add to the remaining dough, 70 grams of sugar and work it with your fingertips to obtain a coarse sand style crumble.
  13. Cover the compote with the dough crumble, and with pieces of almonds.
  14. Bake for 20/25 minutes until pastry is golden.
  15. Let cool before removing from pan.
  16. Cut into squares.

This blend of rhubarb and blueberries works very well together. When I use pure cane sugar, I only need 4 tablespoons, but with regular granulated sugar I usually end up adding 6 tablespoons.
