These sweet and easy apple roses are such an eye-catcher at any kind of party 🍰🍰.

Just make sure the apple slices are soft and bendable before rolling the roses. Really, make sure they are. I messed up a few roses thinking I could make them without softening them, doesn’t work..#stubbornness.

Also, for more color use different types of apples and/or jam. Enjoy the sweetness 🌹!

  • coffee cup
  • muffin baking tin
  • oven

Ingredients
 
 

  • 250 g (gluten-free) puff pastry this is about 5 slices, thawed
  • 2 red apples
  • powdered sugar to sprinkle

Instructions
 

  • Fill a large bowl with water and the juice of half a lemon.
  • Wash the apples, remove the core and cut into really thin slices.
  • Add the slices to the lemon water, this prevents discolouration.
  • When done, pour the water with the apple slices in a saucepan.
  • Add an extra teaspoon of lemon juice.
  • Heat the apple slices until they become soft and bendable, do not let it boil.
  • Remove from the fire and set aside.
  • Take the thawed puff pastry from the packaging and place the slices next to each other on a lightly floured counter.
  • Roll out each slice of puff pastry with a rolling pin to double in size.
  • Cut 4 long strips of +/- 2 x 9 inches (5 x 22 cm).
  • Grab a small coffee cup and mix 2 tablespoons of boiled water with 3 tablespoons of apricot jam.
  • Spread each strip of puff pastry with a layer of jam.
  • Preheat the oven to 190℃/375℉.
  • Place the apple slices on the strips of puff pastry.
  • Make sure that all slices overlap and that 1/2 of the apple sticks out above the puff pastry.
  • Sprinkling with cinnamon.
  • Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
  • Now, the rolling part begins.
  • Starting from one end, roll and try keeping all the apple slices in place.
  • Seal the edges by pressing softly with your finger and place in a regular muffin baking tin.
  • !Make sure to grease the baking tin when it’s not made of silicone!
  • Repeat with all the other slices and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
  • Make sure the pastry is fully cooked on the inside.
  • To avoid burning you can cover the roses with aluminium for the last 10-15 minutes.
  • When done, sprinkle with powdered sugar or any other topping of choice and enjoy.
  • Store in a an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
  • But they taste the best when served hot and crispy straight out of the oven 🙃.
