If you are looking for a special holiday dessert to make this year, I have come up with something for you. Impress your guests with this beautiful rose-shaped dessert made with lots of soft and delicious apple slices, wrapped in sweet and crispy puff pastry. Here’s the tutorial from Manuela.
NOTE(from Manuela – ): make sure the pastry is fully cooked on the inside before removing the roses from the oven! If after 30 minutes the apples on top look fully cooked, move the pan to a lower rack in the oven, and wait for 10-15 more minutes to avoid undercooking the puff pastry.
AND: If you prefer, you can simmer the apple slices in water over medium heat for a few minutes until slightly softer (and easy to roll). Also, the preserve can be warmed up with the water on a small pan over medium heat for a minute or so.
