Apple Pie (Puff Pastry)

I have done apple pie many times but using puff pastry is my first.  This is my first time attempting Puff Pastry as well as lattice.  The process of puff pastry is long and tedious.  No wonder people just like to buy it off the shelf.

With humid climate in Singapore, getting the puff pastry ready is really trying.  The dough is wet and sticky and I have to refridgerate it several time. 

It is also my first trying out lattice on pie.  Well, this is a cheat way of doing it. 

After all the hard work, tada.... presenting to you my Apple Pie (using puff pastry).



Overall, I am happy how everything turned out.

Will I try my hand at puff pastry again?  Well, let's say if I have an air con kitchen, I will definitely consider.
