  • 1 large red apple, cored and very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar (optional)


  • 1   Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter 2 small ramekins (6 to 8 ounce) and dust with white sugar.
  • 2   Place apple slices on a plate, overlapping slightly if necessary. Microwave on High about 45 seconds just until slices have softened a bit. Cover plate with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel.
  • 3   Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • 4   Roll puff pastry sheet to less than 1/8-inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut two 3-inch by 12-inch rectangles. Reserve remaining pieces for another use.
  • 5   Spread melted butter over dough; top with a generous amount of cinnamon-sugar. Place apple slices along 1 long edge of dough, about 1/4 inch beyond edge of dough, overlapping slices slightly. Fold bottom half of dough over the apple slices to form a long "folder" of dough with rounded edges of apple slices exposed.
  • 6   Beat egg and water together in a bowl. Paint surface of dough with egg wash. Sprinkle with more cinnamon-sugar, to taste.
  • 7   Starting from one end, roll dough not too tightly to form a rose-shaped pastry. Seal roll with end of dough strip.
  • 8   Transfer roses to prepared ramekins. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon-sugar. Place ramekins directly on middle rack of preheated oven.
  • 9   Bake until well browned, about 45 minutes. Remove ramekins with tongs and place on baking sheet to cool 5 to 10 minutes. Remove apple roses from ramekins and finish cooling on rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
