i have been wanting to make this apple pie and no matter how i source, there is one recipe (i.e. this) that many people have tried i’d read many “failed” attempts on this recipe’s tart shell.. e.g. butter melts too easily (SUPER TRUE), dough isn’t enough to make the (5-6) servings (TRUE), dough tears easily (VERY TRUE) etc indeed, the dough isn’t easy to handle.[…]

as zoe rightly put it, this “cheat” version (which omits the lamination process) yields pretty much a croissant.. except that it doesn’t have that desired flaky interior regardless, it truly makes baking croissants much easier.. i gave these away to the migrant community.. and the feedback was “marvellous”! do give it a go.. please refer to this link for traditional croissant recipe 事先说明。。因这食谱不使用传统可颂制作方式 所以做出来的效果木有您所渴望一口咬下去有那脆脆的口感 但,大致上,这简易版的牛角包还真是另人回味。。 我将牛角包送给了打工子弟们当早点。。大家都大赞“好吃”呀! 试试哈! 想制作传统可颂,请参考此mini croissant[…]

when Kenneth posted his teochew traditional mooncake, i knew immediately i had to try his flaky pastry recipe on my tau sar piah (craving craving).. indeed, this pastry is so flaky it simply “exfoliates” the moment you touch it… 当Kenneth 上了他潮汕朥饼食谱后,我知道这饼皮非试不可。。况且。。偶近期超想吃豆沙饼 的确,这饼皮是酥得无法形容。。一碰就会碎, you know?
