There’s a way to wow your guests this fall with a classic autumnal treat, and no, it doesn’t involve struggling with a lattice pie crust. Skip all the rolling, crimping, and stress of pie making and make stunning apple roses instead; they’re like mini apple pies that are spiked with a delicious dose of apricot preserves. But though we love the flavors in this recipe, the part we really can’t get enough of is the easy prep.
These mini masterpieces may look like they require pro-level knife skills, but all you really need to do is slice half of an apple relatively thinly and uniformly. Puff pastry helps you roll the apple slices into perfectly presentable roses in a matter of seconds. Watch the quick video below to see exactly how it’s done.
