There is something about fall. It is the atmosphere, the vibe, the leaves falling. The air is getting crisper, the temperature is dropping and in New York City, the sky remains blue for the most part. Blue sky, radiant sun and cold air is my favorite type of weather. Houses are getting ready for Halloween with the craziest displays and I feel like baking more than ever. Apple is a fall fruit so of course it becomes a central component of my bakes. Those adorable apple rose tartlets are the perfect example of that.

Yes, I know, pumpkin is usually the typical autumn fruit. You see pumpkins everywhere. In bakes, in shop windows, as mugs, on doorsteps of brownstones. New York City becomes Halloween town with pumpkins everywhere. I would also love to go pumpkin picking one day but for now, I also would like to bake a bit more with apples. I gave pumpkins their fair share of time under the spotlight some time ago already. Now, let’s discuss those apple rose tartlets!
Ingredients for the apple rose tartlets
- 1 Pie Crust
- 6 apples
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
Apple rose tartlets recipe
- Pre-heat the oven to 350°F or 175°C.
- Chill a muffin tin in the fridge.
- Roll out the pie crust. Using a “3inch cookie cutter, punch out rounds.
- Remove the muffin tine from the fridge. Gently press rounds into each well. Put the muffin tin back in the fridge.
- Cute the apples in 4 quarters and remove the core.
- Using a sharp knife, cut the apples into thin slides. Place in a large bowl.
- Add lemon juice to the sliced apples and toss to coat.
- Sieve the raspberry jam to remove the seeds.
- In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, seed-less jam and butter until fully melted and incorporated.
- Remove from the heat and add the mixture of the apple slides. Toss to combine.
- Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes so that the apples become pliable.
- Take the muffin tin out of the oven and add apple slices to form roses. Make sure you gently roll apples when reaching the center of the rose so that the slices do not break.
- Place the muffin in in the oven. Bake until the crust is golden and the apple have cooked, about 30 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for a bit before enjoying with a cup of tea.
