Ingredient list for 6 roses (Preparation time: 45 minutes)
  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 2 red organic apples 
  • Half lemon, juice
  • 1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
  • 3 tablespoons of apricot preserve
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
 

 
Instructions:
 
1. Thaw the puff pastry for about 20-30 minutes. 
 
2. Take a bowl and fill it half way with water and lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, removing the core. Now cut the apples into slices, as thin as you can cut them. Don't take off the peel, we need it for the red color.

3. To make the apples a bit softer, microwave them in the bowl.

4. Unwrap the puff pastry. Make sure you do it over a clean, slightly floured surface. Stretch it a bit with a rolling pin and keep it in a rectangular shape. Now, cut the dough into 6 even strips.

5. Take another bowl and put 3 tablespoons of apricot preserve, along with two tablespoons of water. This you can microwave for about 1 minute, so the preserve is easier to spread on the dough. Now proceed to do just that.

10.Repeat for all roses, then bake at 375F (190C) for about 40-45 minutes, until they are fully cooked. When we say fully cooked, we mean from the inside as well as the outside (should take another 10-15 minutes after the outside looks cooked, move to a lower rack for those final minutes to avoid overcooking the outside).
