Apple Rose Pie Bites

These small roses made of apple will certainly attract you towards its beauty and simplicity. I was tempted to search of its recipe once I saw them on "Pinterest" though I didn't got the recipe, I am trying to replicate the same design. I am using the apple pie recipe to make these lovely bite size delicious desserts. It's a perfect dessert for all fruit lovers and diet conscious people. A little sugar and apple's sweet and sour taste make it a perfect dessert or snacks for any occasion.





Serve:                   2 (Makes 5 pieces)
Preparation time:   25 minutes

Ingredients:
Apple:                     Red or green (I am using both)
Puff pastry sheet:     3 sheets
Vanilla Sugar:          2 tablespoon
Cinnamon powder:  1 teaspoon
Lemon juice:           1 tablespoon
Sugar:                     4 tablespoon.



Method:
1) Slice the apple half and cut it in thin slices neatly and carefully.
2) Boil sugar in 2 cups water and the sliced apple with lemon juice.
3) Let it cook for 3-4 minutes or until slightly soft.
4) Strain and let it dry on a flat surface or a big strainer. Place the apple slices separately.
5) Cut 1 cm wide and 12 cm long strips from the pastry sheet.
6) Arrange the apple slices on the strip overlapping each other (as shown in picture).


7) Start rolling the strips from one side to make a rose like a shape.
8) Sprinkle some vanilla sugar and cinnamon powder over the rose pie.
9) Grill it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes and serve hot.
