Apple Cream Cheese Rose Tarts

I saw a link to these gorgeous looking morsels and just had to make them the same day.  These apple cream cheese rose tarts are worth making with a couple of tweaks. I will definitely be making these again soon.

RECIPE 

Ingredients

  • 1-2 sheets puff pastry

  • 1/4 cup cream cheese

  • 3 tbsp sugar

  • cinnamon

  • 1 apple

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 3 tbsp water

Let’s Get Cooking…

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Prepare muffins tins with non stick spray.
  3. Halve the apples, scoop out the core and slice thinly.
  4. Combine the apple slices with lemon juice and water in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes.
  5. Roll out the puff pastry and cut into 6 even strips.  Moving forward I would roll the pastry thinner to make at least 9 slices, possibly even 12.
  6. Spread the cream cheese on each slice of pasty.  Double the quantity for 12 tarts.
  7. Liberally sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the cream cheese.
  8. Arrange the apple slices overlapping each other on one half of the pastry with the top of the apple just above the pastry.
  9. Fold the bottom half of the pastry up over the top and roll up.
  10. Place in prepared muffin tins.
  11. Bake for 40 minutes.  Reduce time accordingly if you roll the pastry thinner.
  12. Take out the core and thinly slice the apple.
  13. Combine the apple slices with lemon juice and water in a bowl and microwave 3 minutes. Cool the bowl in some ice water. Pat dry the apple slices of excess moisture and set aside.
  14. Roll out the puff pastry and cut into 4 even strips.
  15. Spread cream cheese and sprinkle on sugar onto the puff pastry strips.
  16. Arrange the apple slices and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  17. Fold the pastry puff in half lengthwise and roll them up. Place in greased muffin tins.
  18. Bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees F.

I served these with homemade custard.  They made a fabulous dessert.
