Apple Cinnamon Custard Pie

When weekends come, I usually like to bake some desserts to bring over to my mum's place to share with my parents and family members after dinner. Sometimes, there will be request for birthday cakes. These few weeks were not as challenging as there was no requests. So then, it depends on my mood for desserts. Recently, I was quite hooked on watching Korean dramas, so I'll choose to bake easier desserts. :p *confession* This weekend, I decided to make an easy apple pie.

Recipe for Apple Cinnamon Custard Pie, modified from Alex's Irresistible Pastry.
(Makes a 9" pie)

Ingredients:
Shortcrust pastry
35g Icing sugar
75g Butter, softened
1 Egg yolk
130g Plain flour

Method:

1. Using a spatula, mix softened butter with icing sugar till light.
2. Add in egg yolk and mix well.
3. Stir in flour and mix till all incorporated.
4. Using a cling wrap, wrap the dough and refridgerate for at least 30mins.
5. Take out and roll between 2 sheets of plastic wrap to about 3mm to fit the 9"pie pan.
6. Chill in the fridge for about 20mins.
7. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C.
8. Line the pastry shell with parchment paper and baking beans.
9. Bake in the oven for 18mins, then remove the baking beans and continue baking for another 8 mins.
(My crust was a bit overcooked, therefore, it tasted bitter. The timing above has already been reduced to prevent overcooked.)

Filling
2 Green apples, sliced thinly (or any apple of your choice)
2 Eggs
100g Milk
30g Sugar
100g Whipping cream
1 tbsp flour
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder (optional)

Method:
  1. Mix the ingredients well (except apples) and strain into the pie shell.
  2. Arrange the apples into the pie. Sprinkle with some cinnamon powder.
