Ice creams belong to summer, cakes and bakes match winter months but pies are perfect any time of the year.
For those heading into summer, a fresh and fruity Strawberry Custard Tart ticks all the boxes. An unexpected pop of basil hits the palate and keeps things interesting – it’s a sophisticated flavour combination that works well after a roast dinner.
Speaking of sophisticated, this Pistachio & Apricot Bakewell is another winner with a twist. By switching out almonds for pistachios, the frangipane or do we say ‘pistachipane’ has a salty side that brings out the wonderful sweetness of in-season peaches. More please.
Less is more in our Fresh Peach Pie, where peaches are the star of the show. If you’re lucky enough to buy ready-made pie crusts, this tart will be an absolute champion. Even if making your own pie crust, the simple but succulent filling will easily make this recipe your new go-to.
And, last but not least, make your very own homemade pop tarts that taste oh-so-much better than the bought ones. Using a Thermomix takes the hard work out of this recipe, and your kids (of any age) will thank you for it.
