I have seen these Rose Shaped Baked Apples and the videos of how to make them on face book for quite some time.  Last night I decided I'd better try them and they are easy if you pay attention to a few things.

I watched the video by Manuela M. several times on u-tube and then wrote some directions.  It only take 2 apples to make 6 roses. Buy a package of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry and thaw one sheet.

#1 Cut 2 washed and unpeeled apples in half and remove all the core.  Red Delicious Apples were recommended but I used Gala.
#2  Slice very thin on a cutting board.  The reason it must be thin will be clear to you when you go to roll them up - thin means they will roll better.

#3 Fill a medium bowl 1/2 full of water and stir in 1/2 lemon juice making sure there are no seeds - put the apple slices in the bowl separating them
#4  Microwave the slices for 5 minutes (3 min was not enough for me)
#5 Stir 2 Tb water into 3 Tb apricot preserves and stir and microwave 1 minute

#6  unwrap the pastry and roll it out on a floured cloth about 1/2 larger
#7 Cut into 6 strips - brush strips with apricot
#8 overlay a row of apple slices with the tops of the apple pieces dropping over the side of the dough 
#9 mix 1 Tb ground cinnamon with 2 Tb sugar in a small bowl

#10 sprinkle over the apples - now fold down the dough in half and roll it up into a rose
#11 put this in a muffin pan which has been sprayed with pam
#12 Bake 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  

I would highly recommend these for a party dessert, Afternoon Tea Tray or Fall luncheon.  I am an amateur and I thought they were pretty easy.  At first the apples weren't tender enough to roll into a rose but I recooked them more in the microwave which is why I suggest 5 minutes!  Also, the apple slices must be sliced very thin - I had to go back and re-slice some of mine which were too thick.

I will be sharing at:

I watched a video on making those, too, Bernideen, just last week. I'm going to give my hand at making them one day. I thought my grandkids would even enjoy making them. Yours turned out beautifully.

Hi Bernideen,
I pinned this quite a while ago and haven't tried them yet. Going to pin yours for the extra tips. They look delicious! Love that teapot with the girl and boy handle! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
