Yummo Thermomix Apple Turnover Recipe

Jul 23, 2015

If you are looking for a quick and delicious dessert (or afternoon tea snack!) that is cost effective and fun for the kids – this is it. This Yummo Thermomix Apple Turnover Recipe has been met with rave reviews and it’s so very achievable. Alas, there’s a story behind it.

This recipe was created for The Desserts Issue of our magazine. It is featured in the ‘From the Patisserie’ section, along with Vanilla Slice, a Fruit Flan, Chocolate Eclairs and Gluten Free Choux Pastry (made in to profiteroles). So, Peta put the plan together and Joe was put in charge of the Thermomix Apple Turnover recipe. Alas, when the final edit of the magazine was put together, the Thermomix Apple Turnover was met with … “Hmmmm…”, not quite what Peta had in mind!

Here’s what Peta had in mind (thanks to Old Fernvale Bakery for the image):
