Pie Sticks

Pie Sticks Recipe

Call me a cheater again, but I just could not wait to share this simple snack with you. I call ’em Pie Sticks. Cute heh?

Why?

Because I made these with the leftover pie crust dough! — Brushed them with my homemade Piri Piri spice.

Baked them at 220C. — And ate them all by myself. Hot from the oven! 😉 (more…)

(Oh, don’t even bother with the “time to eat” coz we all know there’s no “one” perfect time for a piece of cake!) Honestly, we’re not big fans of “cooked / baked fruit”. The concept is so new around here that when I cut myself a slice of this utterly gorgeous looking cake, I was NOT prepared for the caramel covered apple slice! (more…)
