Apple and puff pastry roses

Yes, I'm aware of the fact that literally everyone with access to Pinterest has made these before.

If you haven't: Please enjoy this 100% original recipe of mine that I came up with all by myself and not plagiarised it at all. Honest.

So easy, so quick, and SO delish!

  • 200g of puff pastry
  • 1 apple
  • 6 tsp (or around 100g) of Philadelphia
  • 3 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 3-6 tbsp of dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of icing sugar
  • butter, to grease the tins
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease up 5 muffin tins.
  2. Cut your apple in half, core it and slice up into very thin semi-circles.
  3. Put the apple slices in a bowl, add the water and lemon juice, and microwave for a total of about 2 minutes, mixing through every 30 second or so. The apples should be soft. If they get there earlier, great. If they need a bit longer, give them another 30 sec in the microwave.
  4. Drain the apples and set them aside to dry a bit (just so that they're not soggy).
  5. Roll out your pastry. You want it about 1mm thick - if you bought pre-rolled, you may still have to do a bit of rolling to get it thinner.
  6. Cut the pastry into roughly 25cm by 5cm strips.
  7. Spread a thin layer of philadelphia on one half of one side of each of the pastry strips (along one of the long edges - see photo).
  8. Sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon on the philadelphia, and lay out the apple slices on top of that.
  9. Fold over the free side of the strip on top of the apples, and roll the strips up into a coil to form a rose.
  10. Slide each rose into a muffin tin, and bake for 30 min.
  11. Take out of the oven, let it cool and sprinkle a bit of icing sugar on top.
