Apple Pie With a Twist

Apple Pie With a Twist

I love Apple pie actually I love all baked fruit desserts and specially baked apples... a fruit which I really don't enjoy eating too much just like that but bake it and bingo a brilliant dessert.

I usually make apple pie with the standard pie/tart base but sometime back I tasted an apple pie with a puff pastry base and it was yummmm so I decided to backtrack the ingredients in my head and give it a try and I am so glad I tried because the result was really really good and the whole thing got over in less than half a day :D :D.

And now that u are probably tempted enough to take a bite into it, here is how to make it :)

    5. Make four markings on the sheet make four folds. The corner two ¼ folding inside making it look like an open book and then finally keep one on top of another.
    6. Spread the butter that u kept aside on the top again. Take extreme care as the chances of tearing are very high when u are reapplying. Fold it in the same method again.
