A quick easy apple dessert that looks pretty too.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 2 frozen puff pastry sheets
  • 3 small red apples, core removed, skin on
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp warm water
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon powder
  • 1 handful of almond flakes
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 lemon juiced


  1. Grease a 6-hole muffin tray and set aside. Take frozen puff pastry sheets out and cut each sheet into 3 long stripes. Slice apple thinly and put in a bowl of cold water mixed with lemon juice.
  2. Zest the lemon. Mix it with apricot jam, chia seeds and warm water in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture to the center of each pastry.
  3. Overlay apple slices and show 1/3 of the apple (skin side up) over the edge of pastry. Sprinkle cinnamon over apple, followed by spreading almond flakes evenly.
  4. Fold pastry in half length-wise, roll pastry up like a rosette. Place each rosette to the greased muffin hole - you should have a total of 6. Leave in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  5. Pre-heat oven at 200C. Bake apple puff for about 12-15 minutes or till it's golden. Remove them from muffin tray and let cool on cake rack. Decorate apple puff with icing sugar before serving them with a nice cup of tea.


What isn't there to like about a puff pastry filled with almond, apple and apricot with a hint of cinnamon and crunchy chia seeds? You can double the quantity to take with you to a party.

  • Looks pretty and sounds good too everything sounds like a made match thanks


  • This recipe looks and sounds elegant I love how easy it sounds Thankyou


  • I know I would love these. Just have to try and fold the pastry as you described. Thanks.


  • I love how your recipes are always unique! Thank you for sharing them with us.


  • I have made these before and enjoyed them but this recipe has a lot more steps in it and sounds a lot better I will be trying this one Thank You


  • ohh Chai seeds :) i normally just do cream cheese and apple!!!


  • I would prefer without the chia seeds.


  • Ooh, I can see my hubby loving this. He loves all desserts/sweets with apple. I can definitely surprise him with this one.


  • I make sure to use a sugarfree jam and make these without the icing sugar and sprinkle a little cinnamon instead.


  • Sounds wonderfully decadent but healthy at the same time. Thanks for sharing


  • so pretty

    • Thank you :)
      I hope you can roll them up as nice as a pretty rose, mine looked a bit funny actually, but we thought they were perfect in their inperfectness – if you know what I mean. Missey.


  • These look beautiful as well as sound like they taste delicious! I always need new recipes for book club, will have to give these a go :)

    • Wow, I’m so envy of you – haven’t been to a book club for sometime.
      If you bring these little gems to the club, you could be the most popular club member :)
      Enjoy, Missey


  • I love apples and I love puff pastry, so I know I’ll love this. With a good sized dollop of ice cream. Not sure I could get the Rose look quite so perfect either, but I’ll give it a go

    • Me too! Although I tried but they didn’t look like roses; that doesn’t matter really, everyone in the house were happy to gobble them down with pleasure. Hope yours are as rewarding :)


  • these look like pastry roses. very pretty on a plate.


  • these look great, nice caramelisation on the apples!
