I don’t remember having dessert very often when I was a kid. But I do remember that if we did have dessert, it was often in winter and was something that Mum popped in the oven from Sara Lee or Nana’s. I think my favourite treat would have to be an individual apple pie with ice-cream.
I often make stewed apples in the winter as they are delicious on top of porridge, but these standard stewed apples were taken to the next level with the addition of the sweet dulce de leche (which means sweetened milk or “candy [made] of milk” or “caramel” ).
If you can’t find dulce de leche in your supermarket – you can make it by boiling a can of condensed milk!
Recipe: Apple and Dulce de Leche Pies
- 2 cups stewed apples
- 4 tbsps of dulce de leche
- 700g of Rough Puff Pastry
Whilst the pie maker is warming up, roll out your pastry and cut out your tops and bottoms.
Place the bottom into the pie maker and then fill each pie with 1/2 cup of apple and 1 tablespoon of dulce de leche. Cover with the top and cook until the green light comes on (approximately 15 minutes).
Serve with cream or ice-cream or custard.
Pies may or may not have been consumed for breakfast by this very hungry all the time breast feeding Mama.
