Core and slice apples- very thin

Microwave apples for 45 seconds I found I need 90 sec.

Unfold puff pastry: stretch it with rolling pin and cut 6 slices -along and between creases.

Sprinkle each long slice with cinnamon sugar

Place approx.. 10 slices of apples along edge of sliced strip of pastry, with red side sticking out.

Fold the strip in half over apple slices, leaving red tops over the edge. Brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar again.
Roll to shape a rose and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar again on top
