Amazing Apple Roses!

This recipe makes 24 roses! This is a fun and fairly easy recipe to bring to impress everyone!

  • 1 package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets (4 sheets), thawed (if frozen this will take approximately 30 min)
  • 8 red apples
  • 8 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 16 tablespoon of apricot preserves
  • ground sugar and cinnamon as needed
  1. Start by filling a large bowl with water, about half full, then add lemon juice.
  2. Cut your first apple in half, and remove the core. Slice the apple in thin slices, leaving the peel on. Put pieces directly into your bowl of water/lemon juice.
  3. Microwave all the apple slices for about 5 minutes. If the apple slice bends, its ready to go. If it breaks, put it back in the microwave for a minute (repeat as necessary).
  4. Place your puff pastries on a clean, lightly floured area. flatten it out, then cut each sheet into six pieces.
  5. Place your apricot preserve into a bowl with 8 tablespoons of water and microwave for a minute. Mix then spread the preserves to cover the whole area of your pastry sheets.
  6. Create a cinnamon sugar mix (I use two tablespoons sugar for every tablespoon of cinnamon). Sprinkle over your sheets. (Good way to make the pastry sweeter if you would like!
  7. Arrange your apple slices overlapping each other along each strip segment, keeping a little bit of apple skin showing slightly over the top.
  8. Fold the bottom part of the sheet to the base of your apples.
  9. Starting from one end, carefully roll your segments, keeping your slices in place. Seal the end of the segment with your finger on the dough. Place in a greased muffin tin. Repeat with the other segments.
  10. Bake at 350F for 50 minute to an hour, checking to make sure the pastry has been fully cooked. You can place a layer of foil on top for the last 20 min of cooking, to make sure your roses don’t get burnt on the top.
  11. If you wish you can sprinkle the top of these with powder sugar, or a carmel glaze! If serving after they are cooked, warm them up for a couple of minutes before serving! Enjoy!
