 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.
