Bake-Along #41 误打误撞的Apple Pie - Impromptu Bake



Hands 'itching' badly cos half of me wanted to bake, half is so lazy.. LOL~ End up I decided to make some apple pie with my puff pastry that is sitting in my freezer. Have aldy thawed it night before as I tot of baking some puff etc. Final decision was to try Apple Pie. My idea was I could top a scoop of ice cream on top and viola - dessert for tonight!

I goggled and try to see if I can find some suitable recipe but all seems to be very big amounts. So I roughly see thru what are the main ingredients - sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice blah blah so I anyhow concocted my own version using 1 apple. 

I mix up the apple fillings then cut the pastry into circles, 6 of them and the balance, I cut into strips and intend to sprinkle sugar on top before I baked them. I freeze them in my freezer and intend to bake after dinner so that I can serve them warm.

Anyway I didn't manage to serve them after dinner cos we were all too full.. LOL. I ended up packing  for them to bring home. Hubby didn't like the puff pastry and feedback to apple not flavorful enough. My GF loved it so I guess individual preference? But next round I intend to cook a little to soften the apple and try again!
Apple Pie
1 Puff Pastry *i used 1/2 pastry for an apple fillings*
1 apple, chopped into small cubes
3tsp sugar
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp lemon juice
1/2tbsp plain flour
Pinch of salt

1) Mix all above well
2) Put fillings into cut-out pastry and close them using the fork to press down the edges
3) Bake for 15-20mins til pastry puff up and turns light brown
