APPLE PIE
Apple pie ,i have tasted in McDonalds long back , but never thought i will make it at home one day. Last week i have seen making of an mini apple pie in a cookery show . I actually wanted to  try a vegetable pie , but my daughter Varsha who watched the TV show with me , was so particular to make the apple pie. So finally ii tried the mini apple pie today and it turned out very well. She totally enjoyed and the house is filled with fantastic aroma.

Notes:

  • Always make the filling just before you are ready with cutting the rolled dough. Else it will ooze out water.
  • Adding flour to the filling is to reduce the oozing of water.
  • Seal the pie carefully and nicely. Else top will come separately while baking.
  • Serving it hot or warm is recommended.
