Best apple roses with ginger marmalade and cinnamon
Yesterday when I was cleaning and organizing the freezer I came across a piece of puff pastry. I love having puff pastry always on hand since it is so easy to work with and helps me make very fast and easy snacks and deserts at any given time. The second I took it out of the freezer Maria asked if we can make apple roses again. I smiled because exactly the same thought came on my mind since I’ve been obsessed with apple roses for a while now. We tried a couple of recipes from around the web before, like one with apricot jam and also apple sauce and chocolate. Every time they tasted very good but I wanted a more unique version, so I came up with combination that in my opinion is quite unexpected but tastes delicious because the ingredients compliment each other instead of competing. Sweet and a bit spicy with layers of flavours. My version includes apples and ginger marmalade. If you are looking for something to wow your guests at the party or just want to make super easy but gorgeous treat for yourself you must make these apple roses!
You will need:
3 large red apples ( I used Red delicious)
6-8 tsp ginger marmalade
1 lb sheet puff pastry
water to blanch apples
Icing sugar for garnish
This is how you do it:
Bring water ( enough to cover sliced apples) to boil. In meantime core apples, cut in half and slice thinly.
squeeze lemon juice to the boiling water, add the squeezed lemon and sliced apples, boil for 1.5 minutes.
Drain and set aside. Lemon stops the apples from oxidizing and turning brown, and blanching makes them flexible and easier to work with.
this recipe will give you 6 apple roses
