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 4 servings
Fruity Sour

ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized apple
  • 1 roll puff pastry
  • 1 persimmon
  • 6 tsp chestnut beer jelly (can be substituted with brown sugar)
  • 2⅗ oz Castello® Double Crème White
  • 1 egg
  • ½ pomegranate

preparation

1. Slice the apple, Double Crème White and persimmon into very thin wedges.

2. Add water to a large pot (enough to fit the apple slices). Bring the water to a simmer (just below boiling point).

3. Add the apple slices to the water and simmer for approx. 4 min. until they are tender and easy to roll. Place them on a cloth to cool.

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

5. Along the top edge of the dough, place the apple slices so they stick up just above the top, then add a few slices of persimmon, brown sugar and Double Crème White.

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

7. Bake in a muffin pan at 350°F (on the fan setting) for approx. 15-20 min.

8. Garnish with pomegranate seeds.
