These Cinnamon Apple Rose Tarts are a simple and delicious dessert that are sure to please!
¬†The holiday season is such a busy time at our house! Everyone is coming and going between school, sports, functions, and holiday parties. ¬†And with Halloween just¬†ending and Thanksgiving coming soon it feels like Christmas is just around the corner. ¬†My favorite thing about the holiday season is all of the glorious¬†food! The season is jam-packed with¬†mouthwatering appetizers, main dishes and of course¬†the desserts.
The desserts are the overall favorite in our house from the sugar cookies¬†to the sweet potato pie. These cinnamon apple rose tarts are quickly¬†becoming a family favorite. They are my favorite to make in a pinch when we have unexpected company or I¬†am short on time. I keep a box of¬†Immaculate Baking Company pie crust on hand for just these occasions. It is a company I trust to have quality ingredients when I do not have time to make from scratch. ¬†The have a wide variety of products ranging from organic to gluten-free. They even have a great product locator to find a store¬†has it near you.
They even have a great $1.00 off coupon just for you!
One pie crust yields¬†six tarts and the kids love helping to roll up. It makes for a great fall activity and makes the house smell fabulous!¬†
These Cinnamon Apple Rose Tarts requires¬†two to four apples depending on size. I like to choose both red and green apples for a more festive look. I usually¬†use a mandoline¬†to cut the apples equally so that the slices cook evenly.¬†
It is important to pull out your crust from the refrigerator¬† to warm up to keep it from cracking when rolling. I just pull it out and preheat the oven ¬†to 375 degrees before I start the rest.
First, core your apples and then cut into quarters¬†to use on the mandoline.¬†Or cut in half and then thinly slice with your knife. Put the apple slices in your lemon water bath. ¬†Then microwave them for 2-4 minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. You want them to be pliable so that the bend when rolling but not mushy.
¬†Allow the apples to cool a bit and then pat dry with a paper towel. Cut your pie crust into six equal strips.
Then brush with the melted butter and sprinkle your cinnamon sugar mix.
¬†Layer the apple slices along your strips. They should overlap about halfway.¬†
¬†Now roll slowly toward the other end. And place in your ungreased muffin pan. Repeat with remaining pie crust.
¬†Place in the oven at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Check often after the twenty minute make to make sure that you do not burn the edges.
¬†Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar to taste over the tops while cooling. Enjoy!
