How To Make A Rose With An Apple And Puff Pastry
If you’re like me, you like to plan ahead – and that means we have 20 days to plan the perfect Valentine’s gifts for our loved ones. Maybe you want something special for your husband or wife, teacher or friend, but either way, who isn’t sick of the same old candy and flowers? Bouquets are beautiful, but they wilt quickly, especially during the winter when we’re all running our heat full blast. And as for chocolates, well, let’s just admit it – a couple are great, but the majority of the box either goes stale or leaves you feeling guilty from eating way too many.
Luckily, Davehax is here with a Valentine’s treat that is the perfect balance of sweet and pretty. Using a couple of apples, some puff pastry and a few other ingredients, he creates a dessert that truly looks as good as it tastes. Best of all? The finished product looks like it came from a professional bakery, but they are surprisingly easy to replicate in your own kitchen.
To make a dozen apple rose pastries, you’ll need:
3 red apples.
1-2 packages of puff pastry, located in the freezer aisle. While 1 package contains a dozen, you might want some backups in case of breakage … or to make a second batch!
12 tablespoons of apricot jam (other flavors work just as well).
2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
A dash of icing sugar and/or cinnamon.
After constructing your apple roses via Davehax’s instructions, bake at 375°F for 35 – 40 minutes. When they’re golden brown, they’re done!
So, what are you waiting for? I’m going to make a few batches this week – for “practice!” By the time Febuary 14th rolls around, I’ll be a pro.
