Want to surprise someone with a special breakfast? Search no longer, treat them with our Apple Roses, a thoughtful croissant to express your love or appreciation.
- 1 can Danerolles Croissants Extra Large
- 2 red apples
- ½ lemon
- 1 tablespoon apricot jam
- 30 g sugar
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Powdered sugar
- Remove the core from the apples and cut them down the middle.
- Use the apple halves to slice very thin slices.
- Fill a saucepan halfway with water and squeeze half a lemon in it as well.
- Place the apple slices in the saucepan.
- Heat the pan for 3 minutes on medium heat. Then, remove the water by using a sieve.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C
- Open the croissant dough and roll the dough out.
- Rub the diagonal cutting edges closed, until the holes have faded/disappeared and cut the slab into three parts down the vertical cutting line. Cut each of the three parts into three or four long strips.
- Cover the strips with a dab of apricot jam using a brush.
- Place several apple slices onto the dough so that they overlap a little and the top of the slices stick out on the top.
- Sprinkle them with a bit of sugar and cinnamon.
- Carefully roll them up and make sure the end of the strip is stuck onto the dough.
- Place the roses in cupcake molds (so that the shape stays round), but cover the edges with butter first.
- Bake the roses around 20 – 25 minutes at 200°C in the middle of the oven until the dough is done.
- Once the roses have cooled down, sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
