I don’t know if there is any recipe on this blog that looks this pretty and is this easy to make at the same time. Essentially, they are sliced apples, almond butter and baked in puff pastry. When I was testing the recipe, I gave them as a gift to my 86 year old neighbour who was incredibly happy and said that these apple roses are like your own individual apple pies. I cannot agree more with that statement.
- 1 packet puff pastry
- 3 apples
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup/100 ml red wine (optional for colour)
- 5 Tbsp almond butter
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
To make these beautiful Apple Roses with Almond Butter pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Prepare muffin tins and grease them with coconut oil, set aside.
Next up core the apples and slice them as thin as you can. They don’t have to perfect. As long as they are thin, you should be fine. Place thin apple slices in a cup of red wine (for the colour which is totally optional). Toss to coat.
On a lightly floured counter, roll pastry and cut little long strips. Brush the puff pastry with Almond Butter or any kind of homemade jam. Sprinkle it with coconut sugar. Working one strip at a time, place 10-12 slices of apples, peel side out, overlapping each other, leaving a slight border of dough along the bottom. Fold the bottom inch of dough onto the apples, leaving top of apple slices exposed. Next all you need to do is roll dough into a pinwheel.
Place in the muffin pan apple side up. Continue with the rest of the sheets. Bake until golden brown for 25-35 minutes, rotating the muffin pan halfway through the baking process.
Remove the apple roses from the muffin pan on a wire rack and let them cool for 10 minutes. Serve with coconut yoghurt or ice cream.
