It's Chinese New Year! Naturally that means making some recipes to celebrate, and what could be more celebratory than traditional candied fruit pies? I saw hundreds of types at SuperCheap (a Thai market in the center of Phuket).
Well I looked up the various recipes for these, and although they look nice, they are a complete fail. Pity, I recorded video for them, it would have been a nice recipe.
So what went wrong?
Well you can see what the problem is, the pastry is too thick and didn't cook through properly. The flaky texture was there, but soggy insides made it inedible. This batch goes into the bin.
I'll try different ratios of pastry to filling until I get the mixture correct and then post the finished result. Pity.
