Bramley apple pie

I was very pleased when Marks & Spencer began selling frozen desserts at their outlets. Compared to the offerings in UK, the selection here is very limited. They cost alot more too.

My kids are in love with the strawberry cheesecake. Yesterday, I bought the lemon meringue pie and bramley apple pie as well.

We had the apple pie after dinner today. The pie, which is nicely assembled in an aluminium tray but totally uncooked, requires an hour of baking in the oven. It's so convenient! You can enjoy a freshly baked pie without doing any work.

It's almost impossible to go wrong if you follow the instructions (180 degree celcius, 60 minutes). The pie exudes a lovely aroma. The crust is crumbly and buttery but I find the apple filling a tad too sour. They should cut down on the lemon juice.

We still like the strawberry cheesecake better.
