Recipe for Apple Roses

Ingredients to Make 6 Roses:

  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 2 red organic apples (I used red delicious)
  • half lemon, juice
  • 1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
  • 3 tablespoons of apricot preserve
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • powder sugar for decorating (optional)

Directions:

  1. Thaw the puff pastry if you haven't already done so. It should take about 20-30 minutes.
     
  2. Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper thin slices, as shown in the video. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. As soon aspossible, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water so that they won't turn brown. 
     
  3. Microwave the apples in the bowl for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer. If you prefer, you can also simmer the apple slices in the water in a small pan (on the stove).
     
  4. Unwrap the puff pastry over a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape. Cut the dough in 6 strips. These are about 2 in x 9 in (5 cm x 22 cm).
     
  5. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserve with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drain the apples.Recipe for Apple Roses
     
  7. Place the apples on the dough, as shown in my picture. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you'd like.
     
  8. Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
     
  9. Carefully roll, seal the edge, and place in a silicone muffin cup. No need to grease the muffin mold if it's silicone. Otherwise, make sure to grease it.
     
  10. Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.

NOTE:  Make sure the pastry is fully cooked on the inside before removing the roses from the oven! If after 30 minutes the apples on top look fully cooked, move the pan to a lower rack in the oven, and wait for 10-15 more minutes to avoid undercooking the puff pastry.

Sprinkle with powder sugar and enjoy!
