Recipe for puff pastry roses

You can bake these wonderful puff pastry roses with plums and peaches at home quickly and easily. You can do that for no special reason. However, the occasion can be a special celebration, such as a festive brunch, a cake buffet or a wedding reception.

Enjoy the crunchiness of the puff pastry with the fresh fruit filling and a hint of jam.

Remember the following before you start

Slice the fruit as thinly as possible by hand rather than with a mandolin slicer. You don't have to peel the fruit.

Wrap the fruit slices with cling film and leave them in the microwave for a few minutes so that the fruit becomes soft and malleable and not tears when rolled together with the dough.

The puff pastry must always remain cold. So put the dough you are not working with in the fridge. And leave the finished rolled puff pastry roses in the fridge while you prepare the next ones.

Puff pastry roses and summer fruits


  • Puff Pastry
  • 2 large plums, thinly sliced
  • 2 large peaches, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Garnished with chocolate and hazelnuts


Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

Place the fruit slices in a microwave safe bowl and add just 2 tablespoons of water, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for about 3 minutes. This makes the fruit slices soft and malleable. Alternatively, sauté these in a pan with a tablespoon of butter and heat, covered, over low heat until tender, about 3 minutes. Leave the fruit to cool in the fridge or freezer.

Roll out the dough and cut into about 10-12 strips, each measuring about 4-5 cm wide and 15 cm long. The longer the stripes, the more filigree the roses look.

Preparing puff pastry roses - step by step

Once the fruit is no longer hot, take a strip of the dough (put the remaining strips in the fridge). Coat the entire surface of the buttered dough with about 1/2 teaspoon of jam.

Then arrange the fruit slices on the top half of the puff pastry. Make sure that the slices always overlap a little.

Overlapping fruit slices

Fold the bottom of the dough together and roll the dough tightly to form a rose shape.

Seal the edges with some water so they stick.

Fold the puff pastry and shape it like a rose

Place the finished rose in a muffin tin and keep in the fridge while you finish the other puff pastry roses.

The finished roses are best baked in a muffin pan

Bake the puff pastry roses in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the dough turns golden and the fruit is tender.

The fruity roses are best eaten warm immediately after baking and dusted with a little powdered sugar or served with some ice cream or whipped cream, if you like.

Garnish as desired and enjoy warm

You can store your puff pastry roses in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days or in the fridge for up to three-four days.

Bon appetit!
