What Are Rose Apple Bites?

So, what are rose apple bites? Rose apple pie bites are apple peels and slices that are in the shape of roses. It takes time and patience to cut the roses and peel them. The apple slices should be thin enough to create rose petals, while also long enough that they can fit inside of the mini pie crusts!

Apple pie bites are small and also have a delicious, sweet, and spicy filling. Although our recipe uses sugar, jams, and spices, you can add any ingredients you would like! Adding a splash of color like red or pink makes your rose apple bites look more like roses!

What Is The Meaning Behind A Rose?

Why choose a rose as a shape? Not only do roses look beautiful, especially when made from fruits and food, they have special meanings! I like to consider the meanings behind symbols before creating them with food. For the longest time, roses have represented love.

In Greek Mythology, roses were created by the goddess of love Venus and are a constant symbol representing Aphrodite. Thousands of years later, and roses are still gifted out of love from parents, friends, and lovers. When making this Rose apple pie bites recipe, consider the meaning as you make them. Baking with love is power!

Step by Step Instructions For Our Rose Apple Pie Bites Recipe

Step 1: Prepare the Apples

Your first step is to prepare the apples. First, peel the apples. Afterwards, clean the apples with warm water. For this apple pie bites recipe, it is important to cut the apples so they are moon-shaped. You can do this by using a sharp knife and a good eye, or by using a mandolin if you have one.

Step 2: Bake the Frozen Pie Crusts

As you are preparing the apples and keeping them cool and preserved, you will need to line the muffin/cupcake tin with the frozen pie crusts. Don’t let the pie crusts defrost. Instead, warm and pre-bake the pie crusts in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. This will keep the bottom from becoming soggy.

Step 3: Make the Filling

For the third step in this Rose Apple Pie Bites recipe is to make the filling. Mix the rest of the ingredients listed above in a smaller bowl or mug. The recipe only yields a small amount because not a lot of filling is needed for each rose. Too much can cause the filling to spill as it bakes.

Step 4: Roll the Roses

Afterwards, on a clean plate, line up 8-10 moon-shaped apple slices. They should be thin and have a small amount of filling. Roll carefully inward these apple slices. In no time, you will start to notice the shape and design of a rose with the top layer showing a dark red peel color.

Step 5: Place it All Together and Bake

Once you have your rolled up apple rose, you can continue making this rose apple pie bites recipe by placing the delicious apple pie rose inside of the muffin tin and pie crust. Add more filling between the petals. Bake at 375 Degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.  Keep checking though as sometimes 30 minutes is too long.

Tips And Tricks For Making Rose Apple Pie Bites Recipe

There are many ways to make rose apple pie bites easily! Personally, I like to first warm up the apple slices before rolling them into the rose petal shapes and baking them. Do this by placing them in the microwave for about 10-25 seconds. This helps with the flexibility of the petals. Handle carefully though as the thin slices get very hot!

Also, while this recipe does call for using frozen mini pie crusts, you can still use other crusts and pie doughs! For instance, buying pre-made dough is an option, but you do have to bake them ahead of time and by using a mini muffin or cupcake tin.
