I’m sorry for the long silence and for the lack of inspiration I had in the last couple of months. Summer took away all my ideas and will to cook new things. But I’m back and I hope you’ll enjoy all the new recipes I’ve set aside for you!!
Today’s wonderful recipe is not mine but Manuela’s, I’ve just changed it a bit according to my taste, as usual! It’s such a nice dessert to offer for a dinner or a tea time with friends. It’s easy, quick and stunning! All your guests will wow and ask for more!
1 puff pastry sheet (rectangular), you can either buy it or do it yourself -like I did -using Miyoko Schinner’s Glorious Butter
Juice of 1 lemon
Organic Cane Sugar
1 big tasty apple
1 muffin mold
6 parchment paper coasters (that you’ll cut yourself according to the size of your muffin mould)
Preheat oven: 170°C.
Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in thin slices (they will look like semi circles). If you have one, use a mandoline slicer! It’s perfect for this job! No need to skin your apple (and if you use a red apple your roses will be have a wonderful pinky nuance on the top!). Sprinkle your apple slices with lemon juice. Set aside.
If you prefer you can use a silicone mould but, I prefer tin ones, because I like my roses to have a crunchy bottom, not a soft one.
Do the same with the rest of your puff pastry strips.
