There is a pie maker in the house...as in a Sunbeam pie maker appliance. (I have always been the pie maker in our house!!) Thanks to Careme pastry for sending me this new toy to play with, it has taken me this long to get something finished and up here. Careme pastry is literally the only option for us pastry wise if we are feeling too lazy to make our own puff! I made the mistake of buying a well known supermarket brand once when we were in a hurry and all to my regret! We had to reshoot the entire thing on another day as the pastry was just not up to scratch! This recipe uses their amazing spelt puff pastry. You will never regret that purchase. I assure you! YUM.
We are sooo busy in our kitchen whipping up project after project for you all! I hope you are taking advantage of all the amazing recipes we have created this year. As we have not travelled AT ALL, we have managed to create some amazing content and it just keeps coming. Insider club has never been better or had more value. Head on over HERE and take a look at what you can get for less than $2 per week. It really is the best way to make sure you are using your expensive Thermomix to its best advantage.
