One Filling, Two Tastes

I had purposely cooked more curry chicken on Wednesday so that I can make curry puffs and buns during the weekends. Thankfully, I was able to bake what I had hoped for. One filling-curry chicken, two tastes-buns & puffs. I was very happy with the outcome for the buns, but not really the puffs. I was trying to squeeze too much fillings into the puff pastry that they can't "seal" properly. :p And the shape and size became so weird that my sisters rejected it. Fortunately, my kids still love them!





I was yearning to use my vanilla bean seeds since the day I got my hands on it. However, I just didn't find the right recipe to use it. As I was thinking of making Apple Cinnamon Tarts, I decided to use the vanilla seeds for my pastry cream. I cooked my green apples with raisins, brown sugars and ground cinnamons. Then mixed them into my pastry cream. The feeling of scrapping the vanilla seeds out of the beans was really SHIOK! The taste of the pastry cream with its really vanilla seeds is really empowering! I simply love it! No artificial extracts or essence were needed!

Hi Grace,
Aw yes, I've just replied you separately that I bought the bakeware from Daiso.
Wow! I love sardine-related buns & puffs too you know! Gee, I wish we could do an exchange...
