Apple Pie

Credits to Allrecipe's Grandma Ople's Apple Pie and Butter Flaky Crust recipes respectively.

Its been awhile since I updated this blog. 3 years or so to be exact. In the most honest sense, business and struggles with weight issues have led me to take time out.

But atlas, I do cook and bake occasionally and still love it with passion. Nothing beats good food and good company.

Today I bring you a three course meal I did for new year's eve for my family and relatives.

For dessert. Apple pie with homemade pie crust.
Butter + Flour + Water = Flaky Crust  

Let that babe refrigerate for a few hours

Chopped the apples into fine slices/cubes

The sauce consisted of unsalted butter and fine sugar melted in a saucepan

Homemade crust shaped into a deep dish

Apple Cubes!

Added some cinammon and star anise to the sauce

Baked for an hour at 150'C to golden brown flakiness and VOILA!


1. For the sauce, the recipe calls 60ml water, DONT EVEN BORTHER PUTTING IN WATER. Apples in itself contains a lot of water, so the end product turned out a bit runnier than desired when I added the required water. So next time, I'll just ommit the water and let the sauce get all gel and sticky.

2. As you can see in the picture, I wasn't sure whether the apple would be cook if I just dumped the sauce on top and baked it straight away, so I hesistantly put half the apple cubes into my sauce. That step was unecessary guys. Sorry

3. Peel the apple skin. Laziness got the better of me and I didn't. Skin has bitter and tart notes, would have had a better pie without skin.

4. And lastly, keep the apple pie thinner. Deep dish didn't work well for this apple pie recipe.

Here are the links to the recipes. :)
