We don’t know about you, but this is the time of year we crave the usual fall flavors like pumpkin spice everything, warm soups and the smell of baking apples. And while classic fall favorites, like apple pie and apple crisp, are delicious, we always get excited by the prospect of a new apple treat we’ve never tried before.
Apple roses fit this bill perfectly! These beautiful and delicious treats are sure to be a hit while proving you don’t have to be a pastry chef to make stunning food! These apple rose pastries are amazing with the presentation alone being able to wow a crowd.

Apple Roses Recipe:
4 apples, cored and halved with skin
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 tbsp apricot preserves
2 tbsp water
1 sheet of puff pastry
Cinnamon, to taste
Put apple slices in a microwave-safe bowl. Fill a 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.
In a bowl, mix apricot preserves with a couple tablespoons of water. Then spoon out the preserves in the center of the strip of puff pastry.
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 the apple roses for 35-45 minutes.
Pull out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
