Pastries are so versatile that they can be served as breakfast, afternoon snacks or desserts.
My parents in-law popped in for a visit and a weekend stay-over with us. Since I've a pack of store bought frozen puff pastry sheets, why not make some pastries for our tea/coffee break.
Well, I've got some apples, strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream .... how about Mille-Feuille ! Yes ! ... and some lovely Apple Rose Tarts ^-^!
Made a few mini heart-shaped Mille-Feuille or commonly referred as Napoleans. Used whipped cream with some strawberries and blueberries for the fillings.
Refer the my previous attempt in Mille Feuille
I remembered I've bookmarked the lovely Apple Rose Tarts that Lian of Cook Loves God shared in LTU theme Apple. Really wanted to try making some pretty edible roses ... (and to impress my MIL ... hee.. hee!)
Since I'm using the ready frozen puff pastry, below my slight modification made.
Apple Rose Tarts
1 sheet puff pastry
1 red apple
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp water
Ground cinnamon and icing sugar for dusting
6 cupcake cases
1. Cored and slice the apple thinly. Put in the pot with sugar, honey and water and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes till softened. Drained and cool the apple slices.
2. Preheat oven to 180°C
3. Thaw the puff pastry sheet on the lightly floured surface.
4. Cut into 6 strips.
5. Place about 6 - 8 apples slices on each strip. Roll from one end to the other. Place them individually in cupcake cases.
6. Bake for 25 minutes.
(The temperature of the oven may vary, do adjust accordingly.)
7. Lightly brush with honey and dust some icing sugar and ground cinnamon.

Tada! ... Here's some lovely sweet pastries for our tea/coffee break. Enjoy !
