Individual Apple Pies

Assalamu’alaikum 🙂

Made this just now 😍

I bought mini tart/quiche pans yesterday and couldn’t wait to use them.

Initially I thought of doing a ganache tart, but then I remembered the few apples no one was eating. Not a fan of french apples I guess.

It turned out awesome Alhamdulillah…and I couldn’t wait for the others to eat it this time. How about créme Chantilly to go along with it?

Hee hee I just learnt the fancy name for vanilla whipped cream 😉

The apples were cooked through too Alhamdulillah 😍

Here’s the recipe:

Crust:

125g unsalted butter
2 cups plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
3 Tbsp water

Filling:
3 apples
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp orange juice
handful of sultanas
less than 1/4 cup vanilla sugar (normal is fine too)
3/4 tsp ground cinammon

Directions:

Rub the butter into the flour and baking powder till it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add in the egg and mix till combined.
Slowly add the water and knead until smooth.
Divide the dough into 4 balls, wrap with cling film and refrigerate for 15min.

Peel and finely chop the apples and toss with orange juice.
Add all the other ingredients and mix well.

Take out the dough, and further divide each ball into two, one a bit bigger than the other.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the bigger ball on a lightly floured surface to fit a 12cm mini tart pan.
Ease dough into pans, leaving dough to hang out just slightly to help seal up later.

Divide the apple filling equally, including the juices.

Roll out the rest of the balls and gently lay over the apples, sealing the filling in.

Use a knife and make slits on the pastry to let the steam escape while baking.

Brush with a bit of milk before placing in the oven at 210 degrees C for 10minutes, then turn down the heat to 180 degrees C and bake for 20 minutes till golden brown.

Let cool for a while (filling is seriously hot😨) then transfer to serving plate and serve with créme Chantilly 😁

Enjoy.
