Apple Rose Tart


I have modified this gorgeous recipe slightly for my own taste from tikkido.com of this beautiful and simple apple tart, I'm using a muffin mould to make for individual serves.

Ingredients
2-3 apple I prefer red
1 cup sugar
water 1/2 cup
vanilla paste 1 tsp
knob of butter
1 tsp salt

You also need
2 tbs ground cinnamon + 1/2 cup sugar + lemon juice from 1 lemon
for sprinkle on apples

Directions

Preheat oven to 175C.

Bring sugar & water to the boil using medium to high heat stirring constantly in a saucepan until sugar dissolves completely, turn the heat to low then add in vanilla paste and salt. Simmer for 3-5 mins, remove from the heat, add knob of butter and stir.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles slightly larger the the opening in the muffin mould and place in mould making sure of a snug fit. Next prick the centre of each mould with a fork several times.
Pour 2-3 tbs of syrup into the short crust pastry.
Slice apples very thinly, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.
Place the apple slices into the muffin moulds to form the shape of a rose.
Bake for 20 mins or until the pastry is cooked though.
Sprinkle with icing sugar

I love to serve with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy baking and happy Valentine's day
