Apple Roses

Happy Monday everyone!

yes… I am writing this as procrastination from my assignments… to be fair I finished one (and have other 6 to go) BUT I can take a small break for now 🙂

I’ve seen these a couple of months ago and decided to give it a try. They are super easy to make and it took me 20 mins (plus 30 mins in the oven)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 12 roses)

Jam (whichever you fancy, I used strawberry as usual!)

juice from a Lemon (I used the bottled lemon juice)

2 apples (depending on how many you want to make  you can add more)

puff pastry sheets (depending on how big they are you might need more or less, with one sheet i made 6 roses)

flour for the puff

turn oven on 180°.

Cut the apple in half and take heart and end off with a knife. Cut them in very thin slices.

Place in a saucepan with the lemon juice, cover and let it simmer in low heat. Once the apples are soft, take off the heat and drain them.

Work on the puff pastry, stretch it out with a rolling pin and cut in 6 thin strips. Mix the jam with a tsp of water to make it more liquid, and spread it on the strips. Get the apples slices and place them on the top half of the strips. Place each slice one next the other and have each slightly overlapping the next.

now you can start rolling 🙂 Be careful not to let the apple slices slip out!

Once you are done you can slightly pull out the slices to give it more of a rose shape.

I put all the roses in the cupcake tray in a cupcake liner, so it wouldn’t be too messy.

Put in the oven for 20-30 mins.

Take out and sprinkle with some icing sugar and Voilà!
