Stop and Eat the Roses

Stop and Eat the Roses

by Xio Axelrod

When I first saw these apple roses pop up on my Pinterest feed, I assumed they were just carved from fruit. Beautiful, healthy and not at all decadent.

Man, was I wrong.

These bad boys are made of super thinly sliced apples, sweet dreams and culinary rainbows. Oh. Em. Gee. Get in my mouth, yummy flower!

Want to impress everyone at your next family gathering? Give these a try. All you need are apples, cinnamon, preserves, puff pastry, a lemon, and some water. Garnish with powdered sugar, if you like. This step-by-step video comes courtesy of Cooking With Manuela.

Take a look:

So, fellas, the next time you want to bring your lady love some roses, try making her these. 😉 If you’re feeling really ambitious, you can try this recipe for Apple Rose Pie.

See ya next time!

  1. All I can say here, is . . . YUM!

  2. Susan Scott Shelley says:

    Wow- these are super impressive! I’d like to try making them. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. They’d be pretty cool to decorate an apple spice cake.

  4. I’m not a fiddly cook, but even I could manage these (I think).

  5. Oh wow! Those look yummy! I wonder if I have the patience to thinly slice apples. Maybe I’ll just convince Tord to make it for me! 😀
