Sweet Pies

Three years ago, when a Pie Thing just started business, I was tempted to try their sweet open faced pies when I tried their savoury pies but somehow did not manage it. Recently I was in the vicinity so I dropped by to try some sweet pies. They are open during lunch times now.

Salted Caramel Cheese Pie - MYR12.50 nett. Each sweet pie is 10 cm (about 4 inches) in diameter. I do no like to eat caramel but this pie tastes so good. The almond flakes on top are coated with salted caramel making the texture crunchy yet chewy, sweet yet salty. Very tasty and reminds me of the "Sat Kei Ma" snack. The cheese filling is just the sidekick to the salted caramel almond flakes. 

As it sticky, it is difficult to cut. I gave half to my friend and the above half is mine which I ate a portion each day for 3 days because even though it is salty, it is sweet so I can only eat a bit each day.

Lemon Curd Pie - MYR10.50 nett. The tangy taste of the lemon curd goes well with the buttery taste of the pastry crust.

Side View - The pastry crust is thin yet has a very strong butter taste.

Apple crumble pie - MYR12.50 nett. True to its name, when I cut it in half to share with my friend, the whole pie crumbled and I had to eat it with a spoon. Only for those who likes to the taste of cinnamon. Best eaten with a dollop of ice cream since it is quite dry but it is not served with ice cream so you have to take it home to eat it with ice cream.

Chocolate Fudge Pie - MYR12.50 nett. Rich chocolate taste. I can only eat one eight a day due to its sweetness.

My purchase for that day.

I went there again and bought a minced pie (takeaway) at MYR13.90 nett. It was supposed to be a Minced and Cheese pie but I could not taste the cheese at all. All I could taste is the cumin with minced beef.

I bought salted caramel cheese pie and lemon curd pie again because they are very tasty.
