Apple Roses in puff pastry

Apple Roses in puff pastry


  • 2 Pink Lady® apples
  • 1 Juice of a lemon
  • 50g (1.8 oz) melted butter
  • 1 x sheet ready roll puff pastry (thawed)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • Sprinkle icing sugar


  1. Halve your apples and remove the core but keeping the half apple intact.
  2. Thinly slice your apples and put into a microwavable bowl with the juice of the lemon.  Cover with cling film and microwave on high for 1 minutes to soften slightly. Leave to cool.
  3. Open up your puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface and gently roll to elongate slightly. Cut the pastry along the width into 6 even strips.
  4. Brush each strip with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and caster sugar.
  5. Place the apple slices skin side up along the pastry strips overlapping as you go. Leave a small gap, approximately 2 cm, at the end to be able to stick the pastry together.
  6. Fold over the remaining pastry to cover the bottom half of the apples. Roll the pastry up to create an apple rose and seal with the excess pastry.
  7. Place into a lined muffin tray.
  8. Cook in a preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes at 180°C/Gas mark 4.
  9. Cool on a wire rack then sprinkle with icing sugar to finish.
