This dessert will have your guests mesmerized. The best part – they are so easy to make.
- 2–3 Honeycrisp apples
- 1/4 cup apple jelly
- 1/4 cup apricot preserves
- 1 T vanilla
- 2 T butter
- 4 T sugar
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 box puff pastry
- homemade cinnamon sugar (I use a ratio of 2 to 1 sugar to cinnamon)
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Unbox your puff pastry sheets and allow to thaw on the counter. It takes about 30 minutes.
- Using a mandolin, slice your apples as thin as possible.
- Sprinkle sugar all over the apples.
- Place the apples in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 3 minutes.
- Squeeze the juice of one lemon on the apples and allow them to cool.
- Add 1/4 cup apricot preserves, 1/4 cup apple jelly, 2 T butter, 1 T vanilla to a sauce pan.
- Turn the heat on low and heat until butter has melted. Set the filling mixture to the side.
- Open up one puff pastry sheet.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to to be about 12-14 inches long.
- Cut the dough into 3 strips using the seams in the dough as a guide.
- Place your apple slices with skin side facing out down the long side of a puff pastry strip.
- You want the apples to peak over the dough approximately 1/4 inch.
- Layer the slices all the way down the strip.
- Using a pastry brush, generously baste the dough that does not have apples on it with the filling.
- Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon sugar.
- Roll the apples over from one end to the other to form a rose.
- Repeat with the remaining strips and the second piece of puff pastry.
- Place the roses in a muffin tin, sprinkle them with more cinnamon sugar, and baste some more of the filling on top of them.
- Bake them for 40 minutes.
- Once you remove them from the oven, you can baste them with the filling again.
- Serve these with a scoop of Bluebell Ice Cream and drizzle more filling over the ice cream.
- Store any remaining roses in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
