This looks bloody delicious. I am going to have it for desert this week.

Made with lots of soft and delicious apple slices, wrapped in sweet and crispy puff pastry

Ingredients: to make 6 roses
1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 red organic apples ( red delicious)
half lemon, juice
1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
3 tablespoons of apricot preserve
cinnamon (optional)
powder sugar for decorating (optional)

Preparation time: 45 minutes
Directions:
1. Thaw the puff pastry if you haven’t done so yet. It should take 20-30 minutes.
2. Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper thin slices, as shown in my picture. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water, so that they won’t change color.

3. Microwave the apples in the bowl, for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer.
4. Unwrap the puff pastry oven a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape. Cut the dough in 6 strips.
5. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserve with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drain the apples.
7. Place the apples on the dough, as shown in my picture. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you’d like.

Looks fabulous worth the try and very impressive to guests I should imagine

This is easy.

Use ‘Flakey Pastry’ sheets or ready mix dough which you just mix with water.

Cut in rings to fit a 6 muffin, muffin tin. place pastry in muffin tins.

Chop bacon in small pieces, chopped parsley, Mix approx 6 eggs.

Put bacon and parsley in cupped pastry that you have put the muffin tins. Then pour in the whipped eggs over bacon and parsley. Sprinkle with cheese and black pepper.

Bake for about 15 minutes in an oven with the temperature of 375o or until the eggs are firm.
These are delicious for school lunches or just a snack. Simple to make also.
