Another recipe that was served in the recent Women Gathering at my house, specially for Aline who made the request. This recipe is worth keeping which I modified & developed many years ago, and eversince been sharing with many friends. The Apple Pie was a hit everytime when I served at office or home party.
Hope others will find this recipe worth trying. Don't forget to leave your comment here if you happen to try it.
125g cold Butter
3 tbsp Castor Sugar

1. Mix the first three ingredients using cut & mix method to produce breadcrumbs like.
You can use food processor or do it manually using blunt dinner knife to do so.
Make sure you do this quickly before butter is melt to ensure crispy pastry.
Don't worry if there are butter bits, you must not knead before adding egg & water.
2. Add in egg yolk & mix with finger and if a dough is not formed, add water a tbsp at a time until a ball of dough is formed.
