Laura Calder's Apple Cream Tart

One of the recipes that i must document.


Coz the pastry is by far the easiest to make. No need rolling, just press to the pie mould. Yes, Just PRESS...

I got to know her technique while i was watching her programme at

Astro's Asian Food Channel, Channel 703 or visit for her recipe from other sources.
