There is a very simple recipe for rose-shaped mini apple pies circulating on the internet. This dessert is very popular because it looks very showy and it only uses apples to make the roses.
The ingredients you will need:
– 1 cup white flour;
– 1 large red apple;
– 2 tablespoons sugar;
– 1 teaspoon honey;
– 3 tablespoons water;
– 1/2 package butter;
– Optionally, a pinch of ground cinnamon.
All you need to do is to cut an apple in halves and slice it as thin as possible. In a heat resistant bowl, combine the apple slices with sugar, honey and water. Boil for about 3-4 minutes.
Now it is time to prepare and dough: put the butter in a bowl and add 3 tablespoons of the syrup you have just cooked, as well as the flour. Mix well until it reaches the desired consistency. Cut the dough in halves and stretch it out with a rolling pin. Cut the dough into 2.5 cm wide and 20 cm long strips.
On each strip, place some slices of apple and sprinkle some cinnamon if you wish, and then wrap the dough strips in rose shape. Place the “flowers” in the cups of a muffin baking tray and bake them for 15-18 minutes at 180ºC.
