Dessert Inspiration! How to Make: Rose Apple Tarts

Serves: 6

This recipe requires:

  • ½ package of puff pastry (you can buy this at a local grocery store in the freezer section)
  • A pinch of flour (for the counter)
  • 2 apples (red delicious apples are preferred)
  • 2 Tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 microwave-safe bowl
  • 3 Tbsp of apricot or peach jam
  • 1 Tbsp of water
  • 1 pastry brush
  • 1 muffin tin
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Thaw puff pastry for 30-45 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. In the bowl, mix the lemon juice and water.
  4. Take the apples, cut them in half, core & seed them (remove the cores), and slice them in ⅛ in slices, then place the apple slices in the bowl.
  5. Place the bowl into the microwave and microwave for 1 minute time intervals for 3 minutes, stirring between each minute. The apples should be softer and pliable at the end of the 3 minutes, but not a mush. 
  6. Take the thawed puff pastry out of the box, and place it on top of a lightly floured countertop.
  7. Use a rolling pin to slightly stretch out the dough.
  8. Cut the dough horizontally into 6 equally-sized strips.
  9. **Arrange the apple slices on the dough by placing them so they overlap a little, and the skin part of the apple is showing slightly out of the strip (Look at the diagram down below).
  10. Take the jam, add the tablespoon of water, mix it together, and microwave for 30 seconds.
  11. Brush the jam mix onto the apples.
  12. Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
  13. Starting from one end of the dough, carefully roll the dough while keeping the apple slices in place. Pinch the edge at the end to seal.
  14. Grease and/or flour the muffin tin.
  15. Place the pastry into the muffin tin.
  16. Repeat for all six and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes. Check intermittently.
  17. Cool for 10 minutes and sprinkle with sugar.
  18. Enjoy!
