My sister sent me two tubs of Kueh Pie Tee shells last month. She told me there is a limited shelve life and I have been under pressure to do something with it. I tried filling them with the Popiah (Fresh Spring Rolls) filling this weekend, and they turned out awesome! It gives the savory spring roll filling a new twist when you sink your teeth into the crunchy shells. They taste awesome! Thank you Hwee!

To serve

  1. Fill each Kueh Pie Tee cup with the filling to the top. Garnish with some omelette strips, shrimp, and cilantro.
  2. Fill Kueh Pie Tee cups only when you are ready to eat, the moisture will soak through and soften the shells once the filled cups are allowed to sit around.
