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!
