Method

  1. Place water and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Slice halved apples, widthwise, into very thin slices (about 1/8” thick) and place in the water mixed with lemon. Toss gently to coat.
  2. Microwave apples, in one-minute spurts, until they begin to soften, are bendable, but don’t break. This should take about four to five minutes. Drain apples well and dry on paper towels.
  3. Cut the pastry, widthwise, in half. Set the pieces on a lightly floured surface and gently roll each one into a 12” square. Cut each square of pastry into 6, 2” wide strips.
  4. Thoroughly grease a 12-cup, non-stick muffin pan with vegetable oil spray and set aside. Spread about 1 1/2 tsp. of apricot jam mixture in a lengthwise row on one half of each pastry strip, leaving about 1” of clean pastry at either end. Make an overlapping row of 6 to 7 apple slices, peel side facing out and extending the pastry, on the apricot jam spread side of each pastry strip. Fold the clean part of the pastry on each strip over the apple and jam topped side.
  5. Starting from one end, roll each pastry strip into a rose-shape. (Don’t roll it too tightly, or the apples may slip out.) Set the pastries, apple-side up, in the muffin pan. Refrigerate and firm up pastry 20 minutes (this will help it puff better.)
  6. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Bake apple roses 40 to 45 minutes, or until the pastry is cooked in the centre. Set muffin pan on a cooling rack and let sit 20 minutes. Carefully unmould each apple rose and set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Let pastries cool to room temperature, and then tent with plastic wrap until ready to serve. When ready to serve, dust each apple rose with some cinnamon and icing sugar and enjoy.
