Apple roses| puff pastry rolled with slices of apple |party special |easy snack |kids friendly recipe |snack box idea

Ahh its Sunday again,though its a holiday in almost every country of the world ,in middle eastern  countries its the first day of the week .So I am back to blogging after enjoying the weekend.A video was shared on fb showing this apple roses ....I was so excited  on seeing the video that i tried my hands on it .
And Alhamdulillah  I was successful in  the very first attempt .Served as an after school surprise for kids and my princess was like ....feeling short of words to describe its beauty "Mom they are so beautiful how did you make it ???....Are you sure they are apples???.She had to taste it to believe they were apples rolled in puff pastry .

This can be served as party special or a mid day snack or can be paired with your evening tea. Ahh!! last but not the least to serve surprise guests!! .I always have puff pastry on hand as it is so versatile that it can be served as snack with sweet or savoury filling .As i always make it for the evenings to be enjoyed with tea they haven't found their way to this blog .No one is patient enough to wait for me to be clicked .....hope some time soon  it will be here. Till then you enjoy these apple roses...I have given the step by step pictorial for easy understanding.


  • 2 apples
  • 8 puff pastry squares
  • 2 tbsp Jam / preserve / 
  •    or
  • cinnamon sugar as needed (see notes)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice


  • Take the apples wash it thoroughly .Cut the slices of apples as shown in the pic below discarding the seeds.
  • Place the apples in a bowl filled with water and lemon juice.
  • Microwave this bowl of apples for 2 minutes.

  • Remove and drain the water with the help of a colander.
  • Take 2 puff pastry squares and join them and roll it into a rectangular one .
  • Cut it into 2 pieces (rectangles) and line each with apples as  shown below.

  • Dust it with cinnamon sugar .
  • If using jam microwave it for 1 min and spread it on the  sheet before placing the apple slices .
  • Fold it as shown in pic 2 and start rolling it vertically .
  • Place them in a muffin tray and bake in a preheated oven at 220 c for 40 -45 mints .
  • If needed dust it with sugar on top .


  • I had tried it both ways with jam and sugar .
  • I used kisan mixed fruit jam ,the jam version was bit messy with jam dripping all over and caramelising at the bottom .
  • The next day i tried it with cinnamon sugar and it was perfect with crispy outer.
  • Do not roll it tightly ,since the pastry puff  needs space to be baked evenly .
  • Try to roll the sheets thinly before placing the apples.
  • I was having puff pastry squares so i have done it this way ,if you are having big one you can directly roll and cut it .
  • This recipe yields 8 apple roses.
