Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves six people


  • 1 whole Honeycrisp apple
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup apricot spread
  • 1 sheet puff pastry


  1. Defrost the puff pastry ahead of time and preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Wash the apple, cut it in half, and remove the center core.
  3. Slice the apple from top to bottom.
  4. Place the apple slices into a bowl of water together with the lemon juice.
  5. Heat them for 5 minutes on the stove top or 10 minutes in the microwave until the apple slices are tender.
  6. Roll out the sheet of puff pastry on a floured surface. Roll with a rolling pin to thin it out.
  7. Cut the rolled pastry into 6 equal strips.
  8. Spread apricot jam onto each strip. How much you spread depends on how much tang you like.
  9. Take the tender apple slices and dry them. Then arrange them on top of the pastry strips with the round end pointing out (see photo below).
  10. Fold the bottom of the pastry sheet to cover up to the apples.
  11. Roll from one end of the sheet to the next to create the roses.
  12. Place each rose into a muffin pan and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
  13. After 45 minutes, take it out of the oven and let it cool.
  14. Optional: Sprinkle icing sugar over the top to give the roses a "snow" effect, or scoop a liberal amount of ice cream and place an apple rose on top.
