Golden and Crunchy Rhubarb Pie: A Quick and Easy Air Fryer Treat

Get ready to savor the flavors of summer with a golden and crunchy rhubarb pie, made effortlessly in an air fryer. This quick and easy treat combines the tangy zest of rhubarb and the sweetness of apples, creating a delectable filling encased in a crisp pastry.

To begin, gather your ingredients: shortcrust pastry, butter, flour, cornstarch, rhubarb, apple, vanilla pod, caster sugar, and icing sugar. Grease a round baking dish suitable for your air fryer and dust it with flour. Roll out the shortcrust pastry and place it in the dish, letting the edges hang over. Sprinkle cornstarch over the base of the pastry.

Next, prepare the rhubarb and apple filling. Wash and trim the rhubarb, then cut it into 3cm pieces. Peel, core, and cube the apple. Arrange the rhubarb and apple in the pastry case. In a bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and scraped vanilla marrow. Sprinkle this mixture over the fruit.

Fold the pastry edges over the filling, brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with more sugar. Place the baking dish in the air fryer basket and bake at 180C for 20 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.

Once cooked, slice and serve the rhubarb pie. Dust with icing sugar for an extra touch of sweetness. Enjoy this delicious and effortless summer treat with friends and family!
