Dear Yochana,

Your tarts are so delicious. Can you tell me, what is the topping did you use? It looks like coconuts

Those are grated pastry, not coconut.

Good Morning Aunt Yo,

Thank you for sharing the Apple tart recipe. Greatly appreciated.

Can you teach me how to make those beatiful macaroons. I would like to learn from you. Once you have a class on this, can you email me the date and time and cost at babycancook@gmail.com.

Love you.

Hi Aunty Lucy,
I baked your apple tarts today. Very nice. Thks for the great receipe. However can i check with you if the pastry is supposed to be soft cos of the ground almond? I had great difficulty getting a dough so I added more flour to make it more firm. Even after leaving it in the fridge, it still was kind of soft compared to the normal sweet pastry dough. I was wondering if I had gotten anything wrong. Any advice? Luv the recipe. Thks n regards, Chris

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Chris,

Your egg is probably too big. Cut down your egg then it won't be so soft. Add in a little more flour and chill the dough before moulding it.

Hi Aunty Lucy,

Thanks for the pointer and the fast response. Will take note of egg size when I next bake this recipe. Warmest regards, Chris

Hello Aunty Yochana,

Just a question for general pastry making. When I do mini tarts can I take the leftover pastry and re-roll them to use it for more tarts or do I have to chuck them away? Please enlighten me (:

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Felicia,

Yes you can keep leftover pastry in the fridge and use it as when is needed. Wrap it up tightly and place it in a plastic bag...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Can I replace the butter with vege/corn oil for the apple fillings? Whats the amount?

Thanks & Rgds.

Hi
What is the size of the tart mould you used? And can I cheat and use canned apple filling instead of cooking my own?
