Cooking Thursday

Last week I posted about the shower we had for my niece Katelyn.  I had quite a few requests to get the recipe for the apple roses my sister Cheri made.  They were so pretty and yummy too!
She said it took a little practice to roll them up, and also said that the apples need to be thinly sliced.  Here's the recipe!

Baked Apple Roses

4 apples, cored and halved (leave skin on), cut into thin slices
juice from 1/2 lemon
3 tablespoons fruit preserves
2 tablespoons water, plus more for apple soak
1 sheet puff pastry
powdered sugar

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
Put apple slices in microwave safe bowl. Fill bowl with water and juice from half a lemon. Use enough water to make sure apple slices are covered by water. Microwave for 3 minutes. This will soften the apple slices and make them more pliable for rolling up.
 Next grab a sheet of puff pastry. Flour your board and roll out the puff pastry enough to make 6 strips at 3 inches wide. I scored and cut mine with a pizza wheel but you can also use a knife.
 In a bowl mix your favorite fruit preserves with a couple tablespoons of water. Then spoon out the preserves in the center of the strip of puff pastry.
Next place the apple slices long ways halfway on the strip. Keep adding slices until you reach the end. Then fold the puff pastry over the bottom of the apple slices.
 Roll up the puff pastry and place in a greased muffin tin.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until apples are tender.
Let cool for 5 minutes, sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

Here is a link with a video if you want to watch them being made:

After the fiasco Hunter and I had last night with cupcakes, it may be a while before I try these. LOL

They turned out beautifully. I watched a video of someone making them and they turned out horribly - so I think the practice part is important!! I'm sure they are delicious!

Oh, they do look pretty! I tried your message for cake mix bread last week with lemon cake mix...except I cooked it in a cake pan instead of a loaf pan. Ah, it made for delicious cake!
