Baked Cinnamon Apple Roses


I came across the recipe for these beautiful baked apple roses this past weekend, and thankfully my mom's kitchen is always fully stocked, so she happened to have all the ingredients to whip these up together on Saturday afternoon. They tasted so delicious with the ideal mix of slightly sweet cinnamon-sprinkled apples and a buttery, flaky puff pastry. The roses were pretty easy to make and would be the perfect dessert (or brunch bite!) for the upcoming holidays.

ingredients
4 apples, cored and halved (leave the skin on)
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
3 Tbsp fruit preserves (we used peach)
2 Tbsp water (plus more for the apples to soak in)
1 sheet of puff pastry
cinnamon to sprinkle per preferred taste

directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut apples in thin slivers and place in a microwave safe bowl. Fill bowl with enough water to cover the apples and add lemon juice. Microwave for 3 minutes until the apple slices become soft, which will make them easier to roll.

Next, roll out the puff pastry on a floured cutting board, and cut into 6 strips about 3 inches wide.
In a bowl mix your favorite fruit preserves with a couple tablespoons of water, then spoon the preserves in the center of each puff pastry strip.

Next, place the apple slices long ways halfway on the strip, slightly overlap the 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. Let them cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Enjoy!
