In the meantime rasp the apple. Add almonds, hazelnut, honey and mix.

Divide dough into four equal parts and roll out one after the other. Cut three 10cm circles of each part.


Cut each circle into quarters but leave the middle for filling. Amass filling in the middle with the help of two teaspoons. Now wrap the filling clockwise with the dough quarters overlapping. Give ready roses into a muffin mold and brush with whisked egg. Then cook at 180°C in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave on a rack for cooling. Then lift them off the cups.


Dust them with powdered sugar and serve them with some whisked cream. Simply irresistible and amazing for coming St Valentine’s Day.
