My creativity wakes up unexpectedly and manifests itself in different ways: writing, designing iteriors, taking pictures or painting some awkward tulip fields. This week it’s been all about cooking: trying to recreate the tastes I tried around the world and making good looking dishes, like these unique apple roses. They have an absolutely gorgeous presentation and are so easy to prepare!
Yield: 6 roses
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes
What do you need?
– muffin pan
– 1 sheet puff pastry
– 2 apples
– apple or apricot jam
– ground cinnamon (optional)
– powdered sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Slice the apples in a half. Slice them as thin as possible.
Cut the puff pastry into 6 wide strips of dough.
Spread the jam over each strip of dough.
Arrange the apple slices on a strip of dough lengthwise, overlapping slightly.
Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
Tightly roll the dough to form the rose shape and place in the muffin tin.
Lower the temperature to 180°C and put the tin into the oven. Bake for 40 minutes until golden.
It depends on the oven type but I kept the roses in the oven for 30 minutes and turned on the convection for another 10 minutes.
Ta-dah! Aren’t they beautiful?
Take the roses out of the tin and dust them with powdered sugar.
