Mini Apple Pies


 
Apple pies,one of my favorite dessert/snack/whatever you call it. The filling is very important to me.It needs to be smooth,fragrant and sweet with a slight tinge of sourness. Choosing the correct apple is important too. Below is a picture i extracted from http://ohthethingswedo.com/tag/apple-types/.

 























I am using ready made shortcrust pastry by Borg's. There are a few other brands available in the supermarkets(Cold Storage have them.) but this is my personal favorite. As the filling i concocted it myself,add and taste as i cook the sauce. =) Try it and hope you like it!

Makes:
  • about 5 mini pies (i used my muffin tin to mould the pies.)
 
You will need:
  • 1 apple,core removed and cut into cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 3 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon corn flour
  • 1/2 packet of ready made shortcrust pastry
  • For glaze:use a small portion of beaten egg
  The Preparation:
  1. Mix all ingredients(except apple and pastry) in a small pot.
  2. Bring to boil,lower the heat and cook till slightly thick.
  3. Remove from heat and add to apples,toss them lightly.
  4. Roll out the pastry and mould onto the tin.
  5. Add apples,and pour remaining sauce into each pie evenly.
  6. Seal the pie.(you can see that i did not do a good job in sealing,but come on its my first attempt.ha!)
  7. Glaze the pie.
 
The Baking:
  1. Bake in a preheated oven at 230°C for 20-25 minutes or till golden brown.*bake at the temperature as advised by the pastry package.
  2. Serve warm.
