THE COUNTDOWN CONTINUES: 50 DAYS UNTIL STRAY

IMG_1373Only 50 days until STRAY!!

To celebrate, I made APPLE ROSES, aka sweet little apple slices wrapped in puff pastry. So easy and delicious. Here’s how you can make your own:

Recipe adapted from Having Fun in the Kitchen

INGREDIENTS:IMG_1349

2 sheets of puff pastry

3 apples (I used Pink Ladies)

8 tablespoons of sugar (divided into 5 and 3 tablespoons)

2 small lemons (zest and juice)

2 teaspoons cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

Wash, cut in half and core apples. Slice into thin slices.

Put apples, water, 5 tablespoons of sugar and lemon juice in a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and strain apples. Let cool.

Pre-heat oven to 425.

IMG_1363Cut puff pastry into strips.

Mix remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar, cinnamon and lemon zest together. Spread over the puff pastry.

Lay apple slices on strips of puff pastry and roll tightly to create rose-shape. Each strip will use approximately 3 apple slices.

IMG_1371Place rolled pastry onto baking sheet. I used a non-stick mini-muffin pan that worked perfectly, but any baking sheet (with parchment paper) should do.

Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry has been lightly browned.

Enjoy warm!
