Pink Lady® Rose Tarts

The September ingredients for the #ImprovCookingChallenge are apples & oatmeal. Yea! Now I can try a recipe I’ve been drooling over for years.EJrosetarts

I chose Pink Lady® apples so that the flesh would impart a nice tinge on the “rose petals”…EJrosetarts (10)

First thing I had to do was to transform the oatmeal into a flour. That was accomplished in about 50 seconds with my Blendtec.EJ-rosetarts

I made my tart dough and let it set for a bit while I prepared the apples. (I sliced them nice & thin with the mandoline.) EJrosetartI rolled out the pastry & cut out rounds to fit my muffin tin. Rolling up the petals was a pretty slick job; I had a little difficulty transferring them neatly to the pastry.EJtherosetartEJrosetarts (22)Mmmmmmmmm, they smelled so lovely whilst baking…EJrosetarts (28)Delicious!EJrosetarts (29)Here are the recipes:EJrosetartPASTRY
