Apples Roses


2 apples, halved down the center stem, cored and thinly sliced into half circles
3 tbsp apricot jam
2 tbsp water
Juice of ½ small lemon
1 sheet puff pastry dough, thawed and chilled (keep in fridge until use)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Once you have cut your apples into the appropriate thin slices add them to a microwave-safe bowl and submerge them in enough water to cover. Add juice of lemon and mix together well. Put into the microwave for 3 minutes.
  3. While that is in the microwave, in a separate small bowl, mix together the apricot jam and water.
  4. In another separate small bowl mix together sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Lay out flour on a dry surface and lay out chilled puff pastry dough. Roll puff pastry sheet to less than ⅛ -inch thickness. Using a knife, cut six 3-inch by 12-inch rectangles.
  6. Spread apricot jam mixture over dough. Place apple slices along 1 long edge of dough, about ¼ -inch beyond edge of dough, overlapping slices slightly. Sprinkle surface with sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  7. Fold bottom half of dough over the apple slices to form a long “folder” of dough with rounded edges of apple slices exposed on top.
  8. Starting from one end, roll dough to form a rose-shaped pastry. Seal roll with end of dough strip ensuring it does not open. Add a bit more sugar and cinnamon mixture to top of rose. Transfer rose to ramekin or cupcake tray.
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 until you have formed all 6 apple rose pastries.
  10. Put into the oven for 45-50 minutes until roses are golden brown.
  11. When finished let cool for 5-10 minutes, use a butter knife to ease out roses if necessary. Add a dusting of powdered sugar over top.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
