Rose Apple Tart

The kids wanted to make a simple apple pie today and so they did their version and I did mine.

Saw this ‘rose’ technique some time back on @tastemade that used cream cheese as the filling.

Recipe for 4 tarts (adapted from

  • 1 small red apple
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp water

  3. Slice each half thinly with a mandolin or knife.
  4. Place apple in a bowl. Add lemon juice and water and toss.
  5. Microwave at 600W for 2-3 mins or 1000W for 60 secs.
  6. Set aside to cool and pat dry if needed.
  7. Mix butter and sugar together to form a spread.
  8. Cut pastry sheets into 4 strips.
