Sweet Apple Roses

Sweet Apple Roses

An almost romantic touch of cheese - our recipe for Sweet Apple Roses is a fun and tasty way of setting the mood. The classic combination of apple and cinnamon gets extra depth by the addition of sweet persimmon and creamy cheese. Balance the apple roses with tart and fruity sprinkles of pomegranate after baking.

1 hr 6 servings
Sweet Sour


  • 1 medium-sized apple
  • 1 roll puff pastry
  • 1 persimmon
  • 6 tsp chestnut beer jelly (can be substituted with brown sugar)
  • 75 g Castello® Double Cream Brie
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ½ pomegranate


1. Slice the apple, Castello® Double Cream Brie and persimmon very thinly.

2. Add water to a large pot and bring to a simmer.

3. Put the apple slices into the simmering water, and cook for 4 minutes until they are just tender.

4. Place the apple slices on a cloth to dry and cool.

5. Roll out the puff pastry and cut it into 6 long strips. Brush with the egg along the base and on one end.

6. Along the top edge of each piece of dough, place a couple apple slices so they stick up just above the top, then add a few slices of persimmon, brown sugar and the Castello® Double Cream Brie cheese.

7. Carefully roll the strip up and press it together at the bottom to keep it closed.

8. Place each rolled piece of dough into a muffin tin. Bake at 350°F for approx. 15-20 min.
