What a treat are the Sweet Tortelli with Thermomix Custard!
They are traditional pastries of Emilia Romagna. They can have jam, chestnut or custard filling. In this recipe which has been sent by the very good Stefania they are filled with Thermomix Custard :-)
Preparing these pastries with Thermomix is very funny because the main work (kneading) is done by our electronic friend :-) Someone prefers cooking them in the oven, to have a lighter dessert. But I must be sincere....if fried they are more delicious :-)
Along the regional recipes of Emilia Romagna to prepare with Thermomix there is the Gnocco Fritto and the classical Piadina Flat Bread.
Other traditional recipes you may like are the Canestrelli Italian Biscuits, the Honey Biscuits, the delicious Treccine Brioches and the Zeppole (or St. Joseph's Puffs).
