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
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
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.
