We made Sardine puffs again last Sunday. As usual, the can of sardines wasn't big enough to use up all the puff pastry.
So I thought to myself: Maybe I would make some apple pie?
I figured if I chopped up some apples and mixed in some cinnamon & sugar, it should taste similar to an apple pie. I did a quick search online and it seems fine. Ok, actually quite a few recipes required us to cook the apples with the seasoning first... but I was short of time, and really tired from rolling out all that puff pastry. So, I decided to just chop the apples and throw them into some cinnamon and sugar. *laughs*
I was worried the cinnamon taste wouldn't come through strong enough, so I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top. Turned out messy looking.
I also cut 3 little vents on each pie. I wasn't sure why, but I recalled that most recipes I had read about apple pies require cutting of vents. So I did the same.
But guess what? I really liked the taste of the apple pies. It's refreshing, and I liked that there's still a little chew in the apples. ^^
So fast forward to this weekend... Because my family is on a crazy snacky mood for the 3rd week now, we had sardine puffs and apple pie again. 1 hour after lunch. We are seriously crazy. We were stuffed, but no, we had to snack.
I requested Mom to keep a few pieces for the apple pies and so she decided to use a smaller can of sardines (we were also only using half the puff pastry (got to love puff pastry squares - faster to roll out and you can opt to only use a portion of the entire pack!).

However, Mom and Er Jie don't like cooked fruits. So there's no way I can make a big batch of those. Then again, variety rocks. So we'll just continue to make different flavoured puffs.
