What do you need:
- 1 package of vegan puff pastry (thawing slices),
- 1-2 apples (washed and thinly sliced),
- Greensweet Icing.
- Juice 1 lemon + boiling water.
This is how you make it:
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees, prepare the cupcake holders. You put the lemon juice + boiling water in a deep plate.
Cut the apple into 4 parts. Remove the core and thin slices. Place the apple slices in the plate with lemon and water. Let the apple slices soften in about 10 minutes.
Cut the thawed puff pastry sheets in half. Tape the two halves together so that you get a long strip.
Place the apple slices on a piece of kitchen paper and pat them dry.
Place the apple slices on the puff pastry, the apple slices (with peel) stick out slightly above the puff pastry. The apple slices are half on top of each other.
Fold the puff pastry from bottom to top. Now roll up the puff pastry with apple. You can see that a rose is now emerging.
Place your apple roses in a cupcake holder and as soon as you've finished them all, put them in the preheated oven.
The apple roses are in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Is it going too fast? Then put some silver foil over the apple roses. This way you prevent the apple from burning.
Remove the apple roses from the oven and let them cool down.
Sprinkle some Greensweet Icing over it for a nice effect.
