1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
3 Red Gala apples
½ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
-Peel, half and core apples. Cut into very thin slices.
-Make simple syrup of ½ cup sugar, juice from the lemon and 1 ½ cups of water.
-Add apple slices to syrup then place on stove top and cook for about 3 minutes on medium heat or until tender and almost translucent.
-Strain and cool (this can be done the day before and keep in the cooking liquid)
-Meanwhile roll pastry on a lightly floured surface to twice its size. Cut into 12 strips of approximately 1 ½ ” high by 15” long.
-Lay the apple slices on the pastry strips so that they are about half above the top edge and lapping over one another.
-Fold the bottom up and over the apple so the edges meet and then press to seal.
-Roll the folded strip loosely but securely
-Set the apple rosette into a square of parchment paper and set into a large muffin tin or a ramekin
-Bake for 35mins at 350 degrees
-Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to serve
