Apple Roses

These gorgeous Apple Roses make an impressive dessert! These beautiful apple roses are made using puff pastry making them much easier to make than you think!

Apple season means apple dessert season around here and there is nothing better than that! These Apple Roses are an absolute treat and they are so gorgeous too!

Apple Roses taste just like apple pie and look like they were made by a pastry chef! They’re actually easy to do and can be made ahead of your special occasion.

While I love making these in the Fall when apples are plentiful, since apples are available year round at grocery stores, this dessert makes frequent appearances throughout the year. I mean how cute would these be for a date night, anniversary dinner or Mother’s Day?

This recipe uses puff pastry to help form the apple roses. Using store-bought puff pastry is a great shortcut that makes these fuss-free and much quicker to assemble.
