Now on to making these. Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Now, begin coring and halving each apple.
Slice paper-thin 1/8-inch slices and toss with lemon juice prevent browning. Throw in your butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Microwave the slices for 45 seconds, or until soft and pliable enough to mold. Cut six 2-inch wide strips of puff pastry dough.

In a small bowl, combine the preserves with 2 tablespoons of water. If it was refrigerated prior, microwave it for 30 seconds, then spread the mixture evenly over each strip of dough.
Arrange apple slices lengthwise in a straight line, overlapping slightly, on a strip of dough. Tightly roll the dough to form the rose shape.

Press the edge of the puff pastry to seal it, then repeat for other roses and place in a muffin tin.
