Celebrate Apple Season with Infused Recipes

For many regions in the U.S., summertime lasts far beyond its allotted June through August timeframe. Even if the temperature is still warm (or in some places, scorching hot), there’s no reason you can’t try to bring yourself into the fall mindset. Hike in the woods and smell that quintessential scent of nature, organize your hoodie collection in your closet, and most importantly, start thinking about seasonal recipes. September represents a lot of things, but if nothing else, its is the celebratory month of apples. Cider, pie and so many more recipes are finally at your fingertips with the abundant harvest of apples at your nearby orchard!

Apple Roses

If you want to really jump into the theme of the season, and you have a lot of time on your hands, you’ll love these delicate little apple rose treats.

 

Ingredients

4 apples of choice (sliced into 1/8 of an inch)

3 tablespoon spoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons apricot preserves

1 tablespoon white sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 sheet puff pastry (thawed)

1/4 cup cannabis-infused olive oil

 

Instructions

  1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2.     Place thin apple slices into a bowl, and toss with butter, lemon juice and salt.
  3.     Spread apples onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes until soft. Let cool.
  4.     In a separate bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  5.     Use butter to grease a muffin pan. Cut puff pastry into strips. Smooth on apricot preserves, and sprinkle sugar mixture on top.
  6.     Take apple slices and place them onto the puff pastry, skin side up (the shape should resemble a rainbow). Overlap apples as you go. Leave one inch of dough empty on the bottom.
  7.     Once apples are placed, fold the dough upwards. Use infused olive oil to brush onto the dough facing upwards. Roll the dough and apples from one side to the other to form a rose muffin.
  8.     Bake for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
