First I wash the apples and grate them into thin thin slices with a vegetable grater. You can also cut the apples in half, remove the core and then cut thin apple slices down with a knife. I put the apple slices in any bowl and cover them with water. I squeeze half the lemon and pour the juice over the apples. Stir everything briefly and let it steep for 10 minutes. This will make the apples more flexible for later.

Meanwhile, I put the puff pastry on a clean work surface and cut it into 6 strips of equal thickness. The strips are about 7-8 cm thick. With the melted butter, I spread the muffin tray and set it aside.

I spread a thin layer of jam on the puff pastry. I used a prombe jam today. You can of course also use apricot or strawberry jam. Then I place the apple slices on the top half of a puff pastry strip, sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and whisk the bottom half of the puff pastry on the apple slices. Now the whole thing is rolled up firmly. This is how the apple rose is made! Now proceed as above with each strip of dough.
