Baked Apple Roses

I have seen these all over Pinterest and Facebook recently, so thought I’d give them a try.   Pretty easy EXCEPT for the rolling up part!   And they really are very pretty!

Baked Apple Roses


  • 4 apples, cored and halved. Do not peel!
  • water to cover the sliced apples
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2-3 Tbs fruit preserves or apple butter
  • 2 Tbs water
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • cinnamon for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Remove one sheet of puff pastry from freezer, allow to thaw/come to room temperature. Don't let it sit out more then 30 minutes or it will be too difficult to worth with
  3. Grease a 6 count muffin tin
  4. Put water and lemon juice in large microwaveable bowl
  5. Slice apples very thin, immediately place in lemon water. Do not let them sit outside the water, they will turn brown
  6. Microwave apples for 4 minutes on High
  7. Flour the counter/cutting board. Place the puff pastry on the board and roll to make a large triangle, large enough to get 6 3x12 inch lengths
  8. Cut the dough into 3" strips - I used a pastry cutter to make this job easier (it was my Mom's!)
  9. In a small bowl, mix the preserves or apple butter and water
  10. Spoon an even amount onto each of the 6 pieces of puff pastry, spread over the puff pastry
  11. Place the apple slices along one long edge of the dough, overlapping slightly
  12. Keep adding slices until you reach the end of that piece of dough
  13. Fold the dough up over the bottom of the slices
  14. Roll up the pastry and place in muffin tin
  15. Sprinkle cinnamon lightly over the top
  16. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is brown
  17. Cool for 10 minutes
  18. Remove from muffin tin and allow to cool completely before storing
