Apple Pie

This pastry recipe is adapted from Mikiko blog, originally from egg tart recipe. You got to believe me, this pastry is the best! It's just crispy!

This apple pie is best serve warm, while it's fresh from oven. Yummy and delicious to serve at tea time, with a cup of coffee! Ehmmm......

I think the looks spoilt a bit, just because the braids i made are too thick, which looks rough. However, i did spend lot of time doing it. Very tedious and tiring though :(

The happiest thing is that ... all 12 mini apple tarts are finished within the evening. Wow!
