Apple Roses

A curious and modern apple twist to a classic dessert.                                                      

Yield: 6 roses          Prep time: 20 minutes          Cook time: 45 minutes


  • 1 frozen puff pastry/filo dough sheet, thawed
  • 2 red apples
  • Lemon juice (to prevent apples from browning)
  • 1 tbsp flour, to sprinkle the counter
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown sugar
  • Margarine/Butter
  • Powder sugar for decorating (optional)


1. Thaw the puff pastry if you haven’t done so yet. It should take about 20-30 minutes.

2. Prepare a bowl with the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core, and cut the apples into paper thin slices.

3. Leave the peel on the apples, so it will give the red color to your roses. When done, immediately place the sliced apples in the lemon juice bowl.

4. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon with the apples.

5. Make strips of dough, and brush on the margarine and cinnamon mixture.

6. Place the apples along the top of the dough so that part of the apple is over the dough.

7. Fold the remaining dough over the apples, so that half of the apple is covered.

8. Roll the apples and the dough, and place in a muffin tin.

9. Bake for 20-30 mins until golden brown.10. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm.
