Yesterday I went to a Pinterest party! Basically we each (every female invited) made a dish inspired by Pinterest, dessert or entré, and then after we tried the different dishes, we got a chance to vote on our favorite recipes. My top favorite were my mom’s chicken parmesan ziti and a friend of mine made a cookie dough cake *heart eyes*. All of the dishes were A-MA-ZING but if I had to pick two (which I did) those are it.
I made a dessert, and even though I didn’t win (which was totally okay…….), everyone who tried it told me they liked it, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you all!
All photos in this post are Tastemade’s (I got the recipe from them, and my photos weren’t quite as bright as I wanted…) however this post is not sponsered in anyway by anyone.
You will need:
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
3 tbsp Sugar
1 sheet of Puff Pastry
1/4 cup Cream Cheese
3 tbsp Water
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cut apple in half, spoon out core and stem then cut it into thin strips. Put the apples in a microwave safe bowl along with the lemon juice and water. Microwave for 3 mins.
Note: if you have lemon extract instead of lemon juice, then use 1 1/2 tea spoons of it. Basically half the amount, because the extract is more concentrated than the juice.
Cut puffy pastry sheet into 4 equal parts. Take cream cheese and spread it on half of the pastry strip vertically. Then sprinkle sugar on top of the cream cheese.
Pat apples dry (or almost), and place then on top of the cream cheese and sugar (round side up).
Fold other half of pastry over the apples and roll it like a Cinnabon (cinnamon roll).
Place in the oven for 40 mins.
Cut pastry stripes into 4ths then cut those 4ths into halves horizontally. Follow all the other steps to make miniature Apple Rose Tarts (I came up with that, and they’re so cute).
Bake at 375° for 20 mins.
So, to be honest, the rose tarts (tartlets) taste like apple cinnamon rolls, which is really good.
