RECIPE: Apple Roses

This recipe did the rounds on social media a few years ago but I never had the right moment to make them until this year.  Miss 11 had a Beauty and the Beast birthday party and so I thought they were the perfect thing to serve at her high tea birthday celebration.  They were remarkably easy, delicious and perfect for our Belle.  If you’ve got a Beauty and the Beast party coming up or you just fancy making an impressive finish to a family dinner then give these a try.

Beauty and the Beast Recipes

RECIPE: Apple Roses

Ingredients:

  • 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons of jam, I used quince jelly but apricot or a berry jam would be great too
  • 2 red apples, cored, halved and thinly sliced
  • Plain flour for dusting the surface

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C and grease a 12 muffin tin with oil spray or butter.
  2. Microwave the apples in the bowl for about 3 minutes 800W, to make them slightly softer and easy to roll.  If you prefer, you can also simmer the apple slices with the water in a small pan (on the stove). The apple slices should be cooked just enough to bend without breaking. If they break, you need to cook them a little more.
  3. Sprinkle flour over your surface or baking mat. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough into a rectangular shape of about 30 x 22 cm. Cut the dough into 6 strips, each about 5 x 22 cm.
  4. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserves with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute (or warm up on the stove) so that the preserves will be easier to spread. Spread a thin layer of preserves on each strip of dough.
  5. Arrange the apple slices on the dough, overlapping one another. Make sure the top (skin side) of the slices sticks a little out of the strip. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  6. Fold up the bottom part of the dough.  Starting from one end, carefully roll the dough, keeping the apple slices in place. Seal the edge at the end, pressing with your finger, and place in a regular muffin cup.
  7. Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.  Make sure the pastry is fully cooked on the inside before removing the roses from the oven.  If after the first 30 minutes the apples start to burn on top, move the pan to a lower rack of the oven and finish baking. You can also cover loosely with aluminium foil for these last 10-15 minutes, to avoid burning the top. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.

Happy Baking!

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day is a day of remembering and honouring all Australians who have served and died in war or whilst serving our country. The spirit of the Anzac lives on through the many stories we share through the generations and indeed in our service men and women today.  The Anzac qualities of courage, sacrifice and mateship continue to be woven into our national identity and today we honour those who have served and those who have sacrificed for our freedom and the Australian way of life.

Our Great Uncle, Leslie Winter Reid served in the Australian Army in the first world war before returning back to Australia and starting up our family business, LW Reid.  Today, we continue to work with the values that Leslie established the business with; quality and service above all.

Today as families remember those who have served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, we will remember Leslie Winter Reid and the many other family members who have helped shape our nation and protect our freedom.

Lest we forget.

We’re enjoying the final days of the holidays and are gearing up for term 2, I don;t want to be caught on the hop with the change of seasons!  This weather has been sensational but with term 2 starting for us on Wednesday I am more than aware that Jack Frost is coming along with foggy starts, minus temperatures and warmer clothes are a must!

We need more than a few layers to keep the kids warm and snug for school and the sidelines, but I’m amazed that my kids have managed to grow a foot in 6 months.  We’ve enjoyed the late start to the cooler weather and have managed to get all the winter uniforms ordered, delivered and washed while the sun is still giving some warmth.  If you’re yet to embrace the change that’s coming then I say stay outside and enjoy the weather while we take care of all the kid’s uniforms.
