Apple Rose Tarts

Ingredients:                                              img_5223

1 sheet puff pastry, thawed

2 red apples, sliced thin

1/2 lemon juice

1 Tablespoon flour (for the countertop)

3 Tablespoons of fruit preserve of your choice(I used orange marmalade)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix water with lemon juice. Slice apples paper-thin, leaving skin on. Place apples in water mixture as you go, as to keep them from turning brown.
  3. Microwave apples for about 2 minutes. Apples should bend but not break.
  4. Unwrap pastry and roll out onto clean and floured countertop. Roll and stretch dough to about 12×9. Cut into 6 long strips.
  5. In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of fruit preserve with 2 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 1 minute.
  6. Spread thin layer of fruit mixture onto each strip of dough.
  7. Drain apples. Arrange apple slices on the top of each strip of dough, overlapping each slice, with the peel side facing up. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  8. Fold up the bottom part of the dough. Starting from one end, carefully roll the pastry, keeping apples in place into itself. Seal end by pressing dough together, and place in a greased muffin tin.
  9. Repeat with remaining roses, and bake for 35 minutes.
  10. After 35 minutes cover roses with tin foil to avoid burning the tops. Cook an additional 10 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
