Looking for a little sweetness this week? We’ve got a gorgeous fruity treat to have all for yourself – or share with loved ones. A few simple pantry ingredients turn into edible art. 

If you have some time on your hands, this is a bit creative and a lot delicious! Here’s the recipe from Heaven Leigh & Brooke Ng of Sydney’s iconic plant-based eatery -  Bodhi Restaurant Bar.  


Apple Rose Twists with Raspberry  



◦ 1 red apple 
◦ 2 frozen puff pastry sheets 
◦ 200ml water 
◦ 3 tbsp raspberry jam 
◦ 3 tbsp sugar 
◦ 1 tsp lemon juice 
◦ Garnish 
◦ Icing sugar 
◦ Fresh raspberries 



1. Preheat oven to 170C. 
2. Take puff pastry from the freezer and leave it at room temperature for about 5 -10 minutes. 
3. In a medium size pot, add water and sugar. Bring to the boil and then turn the heat down. 
4. Thinly slice the apple. Add apple slices and lemon juice to water, cook for 1 minute. Drain and set aside. 
5. Using a rolling pin, gently roll the puff pastry slightly thinner. Cut into long 7cm-wide strips(you should get about 3-4 strips from one sheet). 
6. Spread a thin layer of raspberry jam on the pastry and place the apple slices neatly on the pastry skin one by one next to each other. 
7. Take the end of the pastry and start to roll it up lengthways, while sealing the end part of the pastry with your hands, to create apple rose twists. 
8. Put the apple rose twists on a layer of baking paper on a tray and place at the bottom of your oven for approx. 35 minutes or until golden brown. 
9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. 
10. Dust with icing sugar and top with fresh raspberries and serve.
