  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter 2 small ramekins (6 to 8 ounce) and dust with white sugar.
  2. Place apple slices on a plate, overlapping slightly if necessary. Microwave on High about 45 seconds just until slices have softened a bit. Cover plate with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel.
  3. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  4. Roll puff pastry sheet to less than 1/8-inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut two 3-inch by 12-inch rectangles. Reserve remaining pieces for another use.
  5. Spread melted butter over dough; top with a generous amount of cinnamon-sugar. Place apple slices along 1 long edge of dough, about 1/4 inch beyond edge of dough, overlapping slices slightly. Fold bottom half of dough over the apple slices to form a long "folder" of dough with rounded edges of apple slices exposed.
  6. Beat egg and water together in a bowl. Paint surface of dough with egg wash. Sprinkle with more cinnamon-sugar, to taste.
  7. Starting from one end, roll dough not too tightly to form a rose-shaped pastry. Seal roll with end of dough strip.
  8. Transfer roses to prepared ramekins. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon-sugar. Place ramekins directly on middle rack of preheated oven.
  9. Bake until well browned, about 45 minutes. Remove ramekins with tongs and place on baking sheet to cool 5 to 10 minutes. Remove apple roses from ramekins and finish cooling on rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.


  • Chef's Notes:
  • If you don't have a microwave, just sauté your apple slices in a little bit of butter over medium heat for about half a minute per side, or until flexible but not soft.
  • If you use a metal muffin pan instead of a ramekin, I would reduce the heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and cook about 45 minutes, or until the pastry is well browned.

I made two sets of these for the first time on 9/26/16. In both cases, I used non-stick baking pans - one was a muffin pan; the other one had a ruffled shape to it. I cooked one pan at a time f...

Advice: cut the apples in the thinnest slices possible. I microwaved the apple slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning. I used jam instead of butter and I sprinkled it with cinnamon su...

I followed the recipe exactly and the roses came out looking just gorgeous! Crispy on outside and quite tasty. A word of caution: I have made them in a muffin tin and to make sure they fit, I m...

I will make it again, until my mother-in-law likes the taste, and then, we are making 48 for our family get together next year. My recipe actually came from someone else...who used no eggs. Adde...

I could not find 'puff' pastry, I used seamless crescent roll dough. To speed things up I treated the whole square of rolled out dough with the butter , sugar and cinnamon and then cut each stri...

I made this but did it an easier way. I laid the apple slices on the strips of dough and just sprinkled them with brown sugar and cinnamon powder. I didn't sprinkle the tops with sugar because t...

Followed the recipe, using the instructions in the video. They were beautiful and delicious. Would say they are just as (or more) tasty than apple pie, yet more beautiful and easier to make. Eve...

I used Pink Pearl apples, because they're pink all the way through, and they were very pretty. No microwave, so I placed my apple slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet with another parchment ...

Pretty impressive and tasty! Followed instructions except omitted egg wash. Used the apples from my tree, and a muffin pan instead of ramekins. Next time I will tent the apple roses after ab...
