Pixie Apple Pie | Cooking Final Fantasy XIV Food


Welcome to A Recipe Reborn featuring your favourite foods
from Final Fantasy XIV. Hello my name is Lemon Drop and I recreate dishes as close
as I can to the in-game recipe, description and thumbnail. If you’re into XIV and food, please subscribe and click the
bell for a new episode every Tuesday. Today I’m making Pixie Apple Pies, which are basically apple
hand pies. This is a very simple dessert to make at home because of
frozen puff pastry which is available in most grocery
stores. I’ve made my own puff pastry in the past but I’ll be honest,
my home-made version might taste just as good, but never
turns out as good in terms of texture. So, to keep life simple, this is one of those things I leave
to the pros. This recipe consists of three basic steps, preparing the
apples, shaping the dough and baking. Starting with peeling and coring, I’m preparing my apple to
make a compote. I’m only making two pies today, but this recipe can easily
be multiplied if you want to make a big batch. Check out the link in the description for times,
temperatures and measurements. I’m slicing the apple lengthwise and then widthwise to make
evenly sized pieces. These stew together for about 15 minutes until most of the
liquid has evaporated. The puff pastry I buy comes in a box of two sheets rolled in
paper. I let it thaw on the counter for about an hour and then let
it sit in the fridge until I’m ready to use it. Using a pastry cutter, I’m cutting it in half to make two
pies, but a sharp knife will work too. Next I’m sprinkling flour over the top of the dough so that
I can remove the paper it was packed in. Here I’m dividing the dough into thirds to prepare it for
filling. This part of the dough will be excess after braiding so I’m
removing it ahead of time. One half of the apple compote goes into the middle. Again, with the pastry cutter I’m cutting the flaps into
strips. I start in the middle to divide into half, then quarters,
then eighths. After folding in the top and bottom flaps, I’m ready to
braid. I trim the last two flaps so that they don’t stack too high
and puff up taller than the rest of the pie. Using a brush, I’m dusting off the excess flour… And then transferring to a baking sheet. Just before going into the oven, I’m brushing the pies with
a beaten egg. These bake for about 15 minutes and I always make sure to
switch racks and rotate my pans so they brown evenly. Don’t they look heavenly! My house smells so good right
now. There’s not much to say about this. It’s an apple pie hot
pocket, what’s not to like? It’s flaky, buttery sweet and the hint of cinnamon is like a
sprinkle of pixie dust that puts you under its spell. This is one of the easiest ways to make an impressive
dessert so I recommend giving it a try even if you’re new to
baking. For the full recipe and instructions, please check the link

new episode next Tuesday.
