With the weather starting to cool down, there really is no better time to start making those delicious winter desserts. And our Thermomix Apple Pie is at the very top of my list!
Made from homemade Thermomix pastry, this apple pie is absolutely delicious. The flakey, crispy pastry will blow your mind... and really, is there anything better than a yummy apple filling!?
This is absolutely delicious on it's own. OR you can make it a thousand times better by adding a good drizzle of custard or a big, big scoop of ice-cream (both are winners in our house).
