Apple Rose Tart


How pretty are these!!!

Just looking at these make me so happy.  I baked them for my office party and they were gone within 2 minutes….. not kidding.  They look really delicate and complicated, but truth be told they are one of the easiest treats I’ve ever made.  And they are absolutely delicious and always a hit at a party.  Perfect for any Holiday party 🙂 🙂








  • 2 red apples, cored and sliced as thin as possible
  • squeeze of lemon juice, half a lemon
  • flour, to dust
  • 2 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 tbsp apricot preserves
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Butter a muffin pan and set aside.
  • Put the apples in a shallow bowl with the lemon juice and 2-3 cups of water, enough to cover the apples.  Microwave for 3-4 minutes.  This will help soften the apples for easy roll ups.
  • Heat the apricot preserve with a splash of water in the microwave for about 45 seconds.  It should become a thick syrup.
  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and set aside.
  • Dust the work surface, roll out the pastry dough and cut into 4 strips.
  • Take a strip of dough and brush with the apricot mixture.  Place a few slices of apples, overlapping each other, halfway to the strip.  Sprinkle on some of the cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Fold the bottom half of the dough up (see above picture) and roll gently and lightly.  Rolling them too tightly may cause the apples to break.
  • Place them in the muffin pan and bake for about 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Dust some powdered sugar on top.
