Note: I'll be away from 7th to 14th... :)
Baking has always been my passion since young... and my first attempt ~ was an apple pie. My cousin who was studying in Manchester in the late 70's brought home a baking cookbook with lovely photos ... I was fascinated, smitten and drooling all over the pages... and apple pie caught my attention... I was determined to bake an apple pie...
- 6-7 granny smith apples - peeled, cored and cut into 1cm chunks
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- ground cinnamon
- lemon juice
- add about a tablespoon of flour to thicken it slightly
Heat up frying pan... and add sugar and water... let the sugar dissolves (before it started to caramelised)... then add the drained apple chunks.. into the pan. Add in grounded cinnamon and continue to cook until the apples are soften and not mushy.
- 150g cold butter - cut into cubes
- 300g plain flour
- 3 tablespoon icing sugar
- 3 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoon cold water
- a pinch of salt
Pre heat oven to 180C.
Roll out to fit pie dish, and gently fit in the dish and cut out the excess.. Blind bake for 10-15 minutes...
Bake @180C for another 30 minutes or until the top turn to golden brown... Leave it to cool before serving with either cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.
