Rose Shaped Apple Baked Dessert Video

I'm feeling grateful and so happy this morning!!
Tonight my YouTube video for the Apple Roses hit one million views ... all in less than a week.
It's HUGE! So thank you all for watching, liking, sharing, following, subscribing to my channel and writing such sweet and encouraging comments. I'm deeply thankful.

And in case you missed it, here is the video again :-)


Have an amazing weekend!

  1. What an absolute mess! Has anyone other than Manuela been able to roll these? The apples break or pop out. Nothing about this looks good. Maybe it will taste good but I have never had such a failure in baking.

    2. Slice your apples thinner, maybe?

    3. Maybe slice the apple more thinly, or cook them a bit longer. They should be bendable.

  2. Roses are fantastic. I swirl enough calmly and gently and I had no problem. Delicious and inventive. Thank you :-)

  3. I made these exactly as stated in the recipe and they came out beautifully. However, even though I cooked them longer the inside part of the dough was very soft, not flaky at all. I would love to make these again and try them as a savory dish with pear slices and gorgonzola. Any advice on how to get a more flaky inside? Thank you!

    1. Hi! In my roses also the middle part was not as puffed as the outer part of the pastry. I think it's probably the moist of the apples and the butter in the crust. One reader wrote me that she covered the roses for the first 30 minutes, and baked it uncovered for the rest. I haven't tried it yet, so I'm not sure it would fix the problem (maybe it keeps more moist inside?!?) But I do want to try it out. Thank you!!

    1. Yes, it should work well too. You need something sweet that makes the pastry sweeter! Enjoy :)

  9. Can I use Granny Smith or Fuji apples instead of Red Delicious?

  10. Do you have a text version of the directions? I'd like to try this but it's hard to print out a video for later. :)

  14. I had to cook mine much longer but they still turned out beautiful. They were an absolute crowd pleaser. I did have quite a few issues with baking them, though. It was really messy, the apricot jam spilled over the top and left a burnt sugar crust the metal during baking. The roses looked and tasted fine but nearly all of them lost the outer ring of the pastry as I had to cut them out of the forms.
    Have you ever made them in a metal tin? Next time I'll use less jam, a silicone form and I'll roll out the pastry thinner. Thanks for the recipe though.
