Ingredients: to make 6 roses
1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 red apples (I used red delicious)
juice of half lemon
3 tablespoons of jam, I used peach but you could use any kind with this recipe
powder sugar for decorating
Thaw the puff pastry if you haven’t done so yet. It should take about 20-30 minutes.
Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice. Use enough water to cover the apples. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples into paper thin slices. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water, so that they won’t change color.
Microwave the apples in the bowl, for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer.
Unwrap the puff pastry over a lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape. Cut the dough in 6 equal strips.
In a small bowl, place three tablespoons of your jam, with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that it is easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F Drain the apples.
Place the apples on the dough, make sure they are covering about 1/2 the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon
Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
Carefully roll, seal the edge, and place in a muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray.
Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake in your preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.
Sprinkle with powder sugar and enjoy!
