Apple Roses
I love this simple dessert.  With just a few ingredients you can whip up these beautiful apple pie roses!

For this recipe you will need:

2 apples (any variety)
Pie crust (homemade or pre made)

Muffin Tin

Caramel Sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Wash the apples and cut them in half.

Wash and half the apples

Remove the core.  I use a melon baller to remove the core but you could also use a knife.

Remove the core

Thinly slice the apples.

Thinly slice the apples

The sliced should be 1/4" to 1/8" thick.

NOTE:  If you find that you've sliced them too thick, pop the apples in the microwave with a little water for 3 minutes and steam the slices until they are soft.

I like package pie crust for this recipe.

Pkg pie crust
Unroll the pie crust on a cutting board.

Use a rolling pin to flatten the pie crust and thin it out a little.

Thinned out
Cut the crust into 1 1/2 " - 2" strips.

Cut crust into strips
Line up the apple slices along the edge of the crust.  Overlap the apples just a bit.

Line up the apples
Fold the dough over the bottom half of the apples.

Roll the apples and dough into a rose.

Place the rolled apple and dough in a greased muffin tin.

Place in a muffin tin.
Bake roses in a 350 degree oven until the apples are lightly brown. (About 25 minutes)


Caramel Sauce

While the apples are baking make the caramel sauce.  In a sauce pan combine:

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Caramel Sauce
Once sugar is melted and sauce has reduced a bit, remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Add vanilla
The sauce will thicken as it cools.

When the roses are ready, drizzle with the caramel sauce.

Easy Peasy!
