Rose Apples

If you’ve followed me long enough, you’ll know I love a bit of drama – even if it is just through reinventing apparent complex desserts in the simplest possible way. And believe me when I say this, these rose apples bring the right level of drama to parties, events, or even when treating yourself.

Ingredients:

  • 3 apples, thinly sliced
  • 2 sheets of puffed pastries, thawed and cut each sheet into 6 equal slices
  • 6 tbsp Bramley apple sauce
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • Powdered sugar

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Fill a medium sized bowl half full of water and squeeze the lemon juice into the water. Place the sliced apples in the water and microwave for 5 minutes until slightly tender.
  3. Drain the apples into a colander.
  4. Mix the apple sauce and water together in a bowl.
  5. One at a time, spoon the sauce mixture onto a slice of pastry.
  6. Place 7-9 apple slices along one half of the pastry slice with the peel side facing out.
  7. Fold the pastry in half to cover the apples.
  8. Starting on one end, roll the pastry and apples to the other end of the pastry.
  9. Place in a greased muffin tin and continue with the other pieces of pastries until you have 12 apple roses.
  10. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar combination if desired.
  11. Place a pan of water on the bottom rack of oven so the bottom of pastries do not burn and bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Top with a little powered sugar before serving.

These rose apples always go down a treat and I’m sure you’ll love them as much as we all do! Let me know how you get on!
