“A wonderful and simple fall dessert!”
6 Roses

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Grease or spray a 6 cup muffin pan and set aside.
  3. Thinly slice apples or plums and put into a microwavable bowl with 1 teaspoon white sugar, lemon juice and water (enough water to cover the apples about half way).
  4. Microwave apples or plums for 3 minutes.
  5. Put apricot preserves and 1/2 cup water into a smaller microwavable bowl and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Flour counter and roll out pastry dough. Cut each sheet into three pieces and trim the edges to create straight lines.
  7. Melt butter & then lightly brush onto pastry dough.
  8. Brush the apricot preserve mixture onto the pastry dough.
  9. Place the sliced apples or plums along one edge of the pastry, placing them into an overlapping pattern from one end to the other.
  10. Mix cinnamon & sugar together and then sprinkle all along the apples (or plums) and the pastry.
  11. Fold pastry in half so that the apples or plums are now sitting somewhat inside the pastry, then gently roll the pastry into the shape of a rose. You may have to keep the apples or plums from slipping out or the dough from pushing out the backside.
  12. Place the roses into the greased muffin pan and then bake for 40 minutes. To check doneness, tough the center part of the rose to make sure the dough is golden brown and firm to the touch.
  13. Cool in pan, then sprinkle sifted powdered sugar on tops. Serve warm or cold.
