It is no surprise to me that I found a recipe I could add to a website on roses. Delicious Roses made of Pink Lady Apples and cinnamon. Evidently cinnamon is also good for plants and used for healing, killing bugs and protection.
Apple and Cinnamon Roses
- 2-3 Pink Lady Apples
- Juice of one Lemon
- One sheet of Puff Pastry Thawed Out.
- 50g Melted Butter
- 2 tbs Ground Cinnamon
- 3 tbs Castor Sugar
- Icing Sugar for Dusting
Set the oven on 180C, Line a 6 muffin tin with paper cases or silicon paper Cut each apple in half and remove the core keeping the halved apple in tact.
Thinly slice the apples with a sharp knife or use a mandolin.
Put in a microwave safe bowl with the lemon juice and cover with cling wrap.
Microwave for 1 or 2 minutes to soften then leave the apple slices to cool. Place the pastry on a lightly floured board and cut lengthways into 6 even strips.
Brush with melted butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and caster sugar.
Begin on one end of the pastry and place the apple slices halfway across the pastry (so that you can fold the pastry over later) with the skin poking over the pastry edge. Overlap the slices slightly and leave a small space at the end to stick the pastry together.
Fold over the bottom half of the pastry and roll from the end you began placing the apples on Press the excess pastry to seal together
Put the apple roses in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden and risen. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Lightly dust with icing sugar to finish. Thanks to pink lady apples UK for the recipe
