Apple-Pear Pastry Puff

Thursday, December 10, 2009

 

 

 

It’s been a long, long time since i bake pastry puff, and it is because none can be found in my neighbourhood. I think it’s terrible sad thing that one had to go great ‘ distance ’ to have some pastry puff.

Well, great ‘ distance ’ i did went. By chance, while out shopping with my sisters at another shopping complex, in another neighbourhood one day a couple of weeks back, i finally got hold of the pastry puff i wanted. Pleased no end, i went home and bake this apple-pear pastry puff the next day.

 

          

 

Actually, it was supposed to be just apple pastry puff. But upon opening the fridge, i realised that i had only one apple left. Some apple thief had gotten to the apples before me and now i’m left with only one. Left with no choice, i had to subsitute one of the apple with one pear. Luckily, the baked goodies came out yummy still and i’ve got no complaints from my family. Phew!
