Why did I wait this long to try these out?! I think it´s because I am not a big fan of puff pastry. It´s too airy in most recipes so I don´t feel that it gives much to the recipes. But here, it is flaky on the outside but it also has a bite to it and is doughy on the inside. Also, it´s a plus that these apple roses take minutes to prepare and that your whole house smells like warm apples and cinnamon afterwards!
Apple rosesCourse: Desserts
400 gr (4 sheets) puff pastry
2 royal gala apples
2 tbsp apricot jam
2-3 tbsp flour
Water to cover the apple slices
- Wash the apples, cut in half, remove the middle then thinly slice. Place in a pot with water then add lemon juice. Place on medium-high heat and simmer until apples are tender.
- On a little flour place one sheet of puff pastry, roll it out, not too thin. Spread over the jam until it covers it all then sprinkle with cinnamon. Cut in half lengthwise. Take apple slices and place them one after other lengthwise, covering top half of the puff pastry. Take the lower part of puff pastry and bring it over the top part with apples. Apples should stick out a bit. Press lightly so that the pastry is covering all the apples then from one end start rolling until you reach the end and have a roll.
- Place the rolls into muffin tin then bake at 180° C for around 30-40min or until the pastry is lightly brown.
- Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
