Italian Nastrine Pastries with Thermomix

The traditional Mulino Bianco Nastrine Pastries are one of the most successful Thermomix recipe. Nastrine are one of the pastries Italian people love the most, they are always there during breakfast, snacks and breaks.

Nastrine pastries are part of a group of snacks, "le Merende del Mulino" (that means "the Mill snacks", referring to the Mulino Bianco brand name, the "White Mill" in English), which was launched by the famous Barilla Group brand in far 1978 and included different types of brioches, bomboloni and croissants. Since then, the delicacy of this leavened puff pastry gained Italian people's respect, from children to adults.

The process could seems very difficult but it isn't and thanks to Thermomix it is also very quick.

Recipe has been sent by Alessandra Patrone from Grottammare who suggests: " If you eat them immediately after baking they are fantastic! And if you heat them up in the microwaves oven for 15 seconds they are even identical to the original ones! The proof of the pudding!"

As Alessandra well says, they are perfect for a full morning charge. Everybody knows that eating good at breakfast helps to stay active for the whole day. ;-)
Once in a while everyone should eat these pastries for breakfast together with a glass of milk or a cappuccino.

So, we only have to try them!! Why don't we give them to our children for their half morning break? Thermomix helps you preparing healthy controlled food, similar to the industrial one but obviously better in quality.
