Preheat oven to 375 F. Prepare the apples first. Into a medium bowl add water and squeeze half of the lemon. Wash apples. Cut apples in half. Remove core. Slice thin slices and place them into the water with lemon.
Microwave apples for 5 minutes. Set aside. Right before ready to use drain water.
Dust large cutting board with flour. Place one puff pastry sheet. Coat entire sheet with flour. Roll out the sheet to double the size of about 12X18 inches.
Cut into 6 – 3X12 inch pieces. Spread teaspoon of apricot preserves onto entire strip of puff pastry.
Place drained apple slices on one side of the pastry. Fold the pastry in half.
Pinch both ends of the pastry. Roll into a roll. Pinch the end to the rose.
Place roses onto a greased pan. (I like to use parchment paper for easier removal. After roses bake they leak a little and get stock to the pan). Repeat same steps with the second puff pastry sheet.
Bake roses for 45 min at 375 F. on the lowest oven rack.
Cool for 5 minutes on the pan and remove with a spatula. After they cool completely, dust some confections’ sugar for decoration.
