Yield: 2 apple roses
|1 large red apple, cored and very thinly sliced|
|¼ cup white sugar|
|1 teaspoon ground cinnamon|
|1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed|
|¼ cup melted butter|
|1 large egg|
|2 teaspoons water|
|1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar|
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Adjust an oven rack to the middle position. Butter two (6 to 8-ounce) ramekins and dust with white sugar.
- Place apple slices on a microwave-safe plate, overlapping slightly if necessary. Microwave on high until slices slightly soften, about 45 seconds. Cover the plate with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel.
- Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Roll puff pastry sheet to less than 1/8-inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut two (3×12-inch) rectangles. Reserve remaining pieces for another use.
- Spread melted butter over dough; sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar. Place apple slices along one long edge of dough, about 1/4 inch beyond the edge, overlapping slices slightly. Fold the bottom half of dough over apple slices to form a long “folder” of dough with rounded edges of apple slices exposed.
- Beat together egg and water in a small bowl. Brush surface of dough with egg wash. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Starting at one end, roll dough to form a rose-shaped pastry. Seal roll with end of dough strip. Transfer roses to the prepared ramekins. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake on the middle rack in the preheated oven until well browned, about 45 minutes. Use tongs to remove the ramekins to a baking sheet to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove apple roses from the ramekins and finish cooling on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.

Total time: 1 hours 4 minutes
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
|1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed|
|2 red apples (I used red delicious)|
|juice of half lemon|
|1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter|
|3 tablespoons of apricot preserve|
|powdered sugar for decorating (optional)|
- Thaw the puff pastry at room temperature if you haven’t done so yet. It should take about 20-30 minutes.
- Prepare a bowl half filled with water and the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper-thin slices, as shown in my picture. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl so that they won’t change color.
- Microwave the apples in the bowl for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer and easy to roll. If you prefer, you can also simmer the apple slices with the water in a small pan (on the stove). The apple slices should be cooked just enough to bend without breaking. If they break, you need to cook them a little more.
- Unwrap the puff pastry over a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough into a rectangular shape of about 12 x 9 inch (30 x 22 cm). Cut the dough in 6 strips, each about 2 x 9 inch (5 x 22 cm).
- In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserve with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute (or warm up on the stove) so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread a thin layer of preserve on each strip of dough.
- Preheat the oven to 375º F (190 º C). Drain the apples.
- Arrange the apple slices on the dough, overlapping one another, as shown in my picture. Make sure the top (skin side) of the slices sticks a little out of the strip. Sprinkle with cinnamon
- Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
- Starting from one end, carefully roll the dough, keeping the apple slices in place. Seal the edge at the end, pressing with your finger, and place in a regular muffin cup. No need to grease the muffin mold if it’s silicone. Otherwise, make sure to grease with butter and flour (or spay).
- Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake at 375 º F (190 º C) for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.
How do you make a rose apple pie?
Arrange about 10 apple slices lengthwise in a straight line, overlapping slightly, on a strip of dough. Fold up the bottom part of the dough and begin tightly rolling the dough to form the rose shape. Press the edge to seal. Repeat for all the pies and place in the muffin tin.

How to bake apple Roses in oven?
Pinch each end shut, then roll it up fairly tightly. If the apples slices start to slip out just push them back in, not to worry. Now place those unbaked apple roses in a kitchen sprayed or greased and floured muffin pan. Place the apple roses in the oven and bake at 375 F (190 C) for about 40 minutes.
What is the best way to slice Apple Roses pastry?
I used a sharp knife, but if you have a mandoline, feel free to use that to slice the apples. Like it is with most puff pastry recipes, these apple roses pastry is best on the day it is baked. If you are serving it to a small crowd, I would recommend baking just a few of them and keeping the rest in the fridge in an airtight container.
