Lately, I made some extra pie dough for keeping. Pastry can keep for a week in the chiller and it will turned out as good as just made. Thaw it for 15 - 20 mins and it will be ready for use, so it serve a good purpose for me as I can then make just 4 apple pies for Daddy and myself as tea snack or as after dinner dessert with a scoop of ice cream of any flavor :)
I made some apple pies with almond flakes as fillings and toppings and it turned out yummilicious!
I used dailydelicious’s good for everything pie dough for this apple pie, I added in some toasted almond flakes to let it have some crunch feel when biting into the pie and the nutty fragrance gave extra oomph to the apple pie. I brushed the top with egg wash, then throw some almond flakes on the top of the pie and bake for 20-25 minutes or till golden brown.
Ingredients for the fillings:
1 green apple - diced into small cubes
1 red apple - diced into small cubes
some lemon/lime juice
2 tbsp brown castor sugar
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
2 tbsp raisins
some toasted almond flakes -
Mixed the above ingredients together except the almond flakes. Cook it for a few minutes if you want the apples to be soft. Add in some toasted almond flakes last.
