Apple Blossoms

An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor away, Lets hope this recipe qualifies. Well never see a Doctor again.

We saw a great recipe for an apple tart that looks like a rose when its baked. We just love apple pie so we thought why not give it a try.  You can see from the picture that it turned out just beautifully and it was so easy to create.

We did make some changes to the recipe and we’ll share them below.  Just wait until you taste this delicious little treat for  yourself.  You’ll want to make it for company because it can be made ahead of time and then popped into the oven while your are enjoying dinner.

We just love things that are simple to create but look like you spent hours in the kitchen.


Lets get started!

2 rolls of real butter puff pastry from the freezer section of the supermarket (Thawed) I use PC brand all butter puff pasty.

2 Granny Smith apples, cut in half, core removed and sliced thinly

2/3 cup soft butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/3 cup real maple syrup

Unroll the puff pastry and cut each sheet into three equal long strips

Place the apple slices in a single layer on a plate and microwave for 2 minutes. (this makes the slices pliable)

Mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl

Spread the mixture down the middle of each of the pastry strips in a 2 inch wide band

Lay the apple slices (peel side to one edge of the pastry) overlapping each piece of apple to the next

Now fold the pastry so you have a row of apples between the pastry like a closed book.

Here’s where the magic happens! Begin rolling the pastry from one end to the other and a rose of apple  and pastry will appear.

Pop it into a large muffin tin. Complete this process until you have 6 beautiful Apple Blossoms. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 or so minutes.
