Custard Cream Apple Pie

Today’s menu is apple pie filled with custard cream.
This menu popped up in my Instagram feed, so I was curious about it. So, I tried it.

I’m sure it’s not 100% the same, but I tried to recreate it as closely as possible.
I used store-bought puff pastry and it was so convenient.

It’s the best dessert I made this year! Haha!
