Apple Rose Pastries
1 Large or 2 Smaller Apples
1 Sheet of puff pastry (thawed)
½ Lemon - Juice
melted butter
brown sugar and cinnamon
caramel sauce or powdered sugar for finishing

Slice your apple in half and then carefully cut the core out. You want to keep the apple halves in tact.
Then, slice your half apple into thin pieces
Place those apple slices in a microwavable bowl of water with juice of half a lemon. This will help prevent the apples from browning. Microwave the apples for 3 minutes to soften. Then, drain the water out of the bowl and let cool.
Roll out your thawed puff pastry sheet slightly on a floured surface. Cut into 6 even strips.
Brush each strip with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Start in the center on one end of the pastry strip and overlap thin apple slices, leaving the colored skin of the apple protruding off the top of the pastry.
Fold over the bottom half of the pastry on top of the apple slices.
8. Start at one end and roll the strips gently, tucking the end of the pastry strip under the rose.
9. Place them into a muffin pan cup sprayed with non-stick spray.
10. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
11. Remove from pan and let cool on rack.
