As I am hosting "Let's Party!", a party-food blogging competition open to all bloggers and food lovers, I thought I must make these puff pastry roses which can be a perfect recipe for entertaining. I have made them a few times and they have always been greatly appreciated.
This is a last minute recipe you can make if you have friends or family coming around or if you don't have much time on your hands as they will only take minutes to prepare; they will also look very pretty indeed. You can use plums but apples would be perfect too.
All you need is a sheet of puff pastry, milk, fruit and some sugar and these pretty roses will be ready to cook in minutes! So.. let's cook!
- Prep Time : 15 minutes
- Cook Time : 15 minutes
Wash and cut the plums into thin slices
Lay the puff pastry on your working plan. Cut it into 4 long rectangles
Brush the ends with milk
Line the plum slices next to each other over the pastry
Now roll the puff pastry inwards to make a roll. Seal the ends with the milk
With a knife cut the rolls into slices (about 1 cm thick) and sprinkle them with brown sugar
Line them up on a baking tray over a sheet of baking paper and cook until golden at 200 C or 390F for about 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
