I am so glad it is Friday! This was a long long week. I mentally clocked out at 3:30 yesterday so I am thrilled the weekend is finally here. I have some fun things lined up!
Today I'm sharing a delicious recipe for Cinnamon Apple Rosettes. Apple season is on its way!!
I am so in love with anything with apples in it: a waldorf salad (omg!), a warm homemade apple pie, or apple slices dipped in peanut butter. Either way, if it has apples in it, I want it!
Apples are one of the most versatile fruits available and the flavors and textures are endless. I just tried a new type of apple just the other day- a Kuki apple. Have you ever heard of that one? It reminds me so much of a Pink Lady (my favorite by the way) - sweet, crisp, and very juicy.
Here is a fall recipe for Cinnamon Apple Rosettes. They are fun and really easy to make! Ready in no time. Hope you enjoy!
1 Puff Pastry Sheet (sit at room temperature for 45 minutes to soften)
3 Apples - I used a combination of Fuji and Pink Lady Apples
5 Tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 pinch Nutmeg
1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
4 cups Water
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Wash, core, and cut all the apples until thinly sliced.
Drain apples in a colander.
Immediately lay them neatly arranged on a flat paper towel for 4-5 minutes to dry completely. You don't want wet apples!
The puff pastry should be soft and at this point. Love these things! So simple and easy to use!
Unwrap one puff pastry and lay it on a flat surface. Sprinkle some flour on top if it is getting too sticky. Puff pastries work best when not completely thawed out!!
Take a few slices and place them on the first strip of pastry dough, overlapping them so they do not fall out. Slowly start rolling up the end of each strip until it makes a nice rose shape. Make sure it is fairly tight so the apples will not fall out apart. Continue until all strips are complete. You may have a few left over apples to nibble on.
Place all apple rosettes on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Bake at 425˚F for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve immediately with a side of vanilla ice cream. You can also top it with some confectioners sugar for extra flavor. Such a delicious and fun recipe. I hope you enjoy this wonderful fall treat!
