Baked Apple roses

Ingredients
for dough

wheat flour  2 cups
warm milk  3/4 cup
dry yeast 2 tsp
sugar 1 tbsp
butter  2 tbsp


For apple jam
sugar 2 tbsp
apple grated 2 tbsp
fresh rose petals  2 tbsp ( optional) or use rose essence 1/2 tsp
citric acid 3 pinch


For rose
cut apple into half, remove the core, cut into thin semi-circles or you may grate also
put the apple slices in little water with lime juice, micro high for 30 seconds, drain the slices and keep

METHOD
for dough

in warm milk, add yeast, sugar, mix, leave it to prove for about 15 minutes
add flour, butter to the milk mixture, knead to a smooth dough, cover to double in size.
once the dough has doubled, punch it to remove air, knead well again.
Take some portion of the dough, roll well, then with rolling pin, roll into  not too thin rectangle, or you may roll as round, then cut long rectangle strips of about 4 " wide & 7-9 " long.


To make jam- heat sugar and apple well, till sugar has dissolved, then add rose petals if you've, or cook till thick, remove adding essence and citric acid. This jam can be stored in the fridge.
In the long strips, spread the prepared jam( which can be made once you knead the dough & before it proves). place apple slices over-lapping each other with about 1/2" slices seen outside the dough. after covering with apple slices on one side, fold the lower part roughly 1/3rd of it, then roll from one side tightly, with apple slices seen above. place the prepared rolls in a greased baking tray, bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 deg. C for about 10-12 minutes, take it out once the roses are light brown/ golden, sprinkle some powder sugar on them and serve hot/ cold. As once, they're baked, they'll look like roses.
