Caramel Apple Roses

I love apples, anything to do with apples really. Apple Slice, Apple Pie, Apple Crumble... you name it. So when I saw a picture of apple roses I immediately had to check it out and I am so glad I did. These apple roses combined with my recipe for homemade caramel, dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar, have become one my top favourite apple desserts.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
Caramel:
1 x 395g tin of condensed milk
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of brown sugar

Apple Roses
2 large apples, I used royal gala
Juice of half a lemon
1 bowl of water
Flour for rolling
9 teaspoons of the homemade caramel
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 sheet of puff pastry
Icing sugar for dusting

To Serve (Optional):
1 punnet of raspberries
300g whipped cream
cocoa for dusting
homemade caramel

Method
Caramel:
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the condensed milk, butter and brown sugar until combined.
  • Heat in the microwave for 30 second increments until thick. Stir after each interval.
  • Set aside.


  • Apple Roses:
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
  • Thaw out the sheet of puff pastry in the refrigerator.
  • Add the lemon juice to the bowl of water.
  • Core the apples and cut them in half. Leave the skin on.
  • Slice the apples thinly, approximately 3mm wide.

  • Place the apple slices into the bowl of lemon water.
  • Microwave the apples for 2-3 minutes until they bend but aren't too mushy. Drain the water out of the bowl and set the apple slice aside to cool.
  • Heavily spray a muffin tray with canola spray.
  • Flour a clean surface and roll out the puff pastry so it keeps the same width but is a tad longer.
  • Using a pizza cutter, slice the puff pastry into 6 long strips.
  • Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of the caramel onto each strip from end to end. Sprinkle each strip with cinnamon.

  • Layer the apples on the top half of each strip so that they are slightly overlapping. Fold the bottom of the pastry over the lower half of the apple slices.

  • Carefully roll the puff pastry from one side to the other.

  • Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

  • Sprinkle with icing sugar.
  • Either serve the roses hot or set them aside to cool before serving.


  • Optional Serving Suggestion:
  • Using a piping bag, pipe the caramel onto the plates in a circular pattern.
  • Dollop teaspoons of whipped cream around the edges of the plate. Place a single raspberry on each dollop of cream.
  • Position the Caramel Apple Rose either to the middle or the side of the plate. Dust with cocoa.
