Good morning and Happy Tuesday! Today we are so excited to be joining so many of our other blogging friends for this years first installment of the Farmhouse Holiday Series! We are sharing our kitchens and a recipe today. I decided to try making some Apple Roses, something I had never made before which made me a little bit nervous but I am so glad I did. They were so much fun to make, and turned out to be quite tasty! They also ended up prettier than I was expecting. Ha! I thought for sure mine would end up shriveling or falling apart so I was so excited when they actually stayed together and looked like roses. I did burn a couple of tips on one of them but it still tasted delicious.

I used this recipe but no one in our family is really a fan of apricots and based on some of the reviews that said they were a little bland I decided to try making a paste that would a more traditional apple pie flavor. I didn’t measure anything, I just melted some butter and then added in brown sugar and cinnamon and mixed it into a thick paste and used that instead of the apricot preserve. Other than that though I just followed the directions from this recipe.

The thinner you slice your apples the easier it is to roll them! And don’t worry about making them perfect. That doesn’t matter at all. Just try to make the slices at thin as you can.

Make sure to let the puff pastry dough thaw and then roll it out (this was before I rolled it).

And here they are!

I always love when a dessert is relatively easy, looks pretty and tastes good! You can’t beat that! I will definitely be making these again!

And here are some pictures of our kitchen. There aren’t any pumpkins yet but I did hang a couple of my wheat wreaths and some fresh hydrangeas as well as a few faux pumpkins. I also brought my copper pitcher and mugs out as they add a bit of a warm fall touch.

  1. I love the deep rich colors of your kitchen. The touches of brass and gold make it sparkle. I also must try that recipe. They are BEAUTIFUL!!

  3. The dessert looks amazing. Is it really that easy? I’m having girlfriends over for dinner Friday, and this could be really special. I love your polka dot bowls–I just purchased the salad plates and a rectangular dish of the same “polka dot” and Home Goods. We obviously have very good taste! Your home is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Your home is so warm and inviting. That is a gift to your family and everyone that comes through your door. That is the prettiest dessert and I can’t wait to try it!

  5. These look delicious! Your kitchen is, and always will be, one of my favorites. You’ve been so helpful to us when we painted our kitchen cabinets and when we built a rolling cart using your tutorial. We used the cabinet paint you recommended and they’ve held up great and we get compliments on the rolling cart all the time. Thank you! I do have a quick question for you though…we’re thinking of replacing our appliances with stainless steel. I’ve heard conflicting opinions on whether it’s hard to keep clean. Your appliances are lovely and I was wondering if you have stainless or the “stainless look?” I’ve heard some people are getting the stainless look (basically a grey colored paint on the appliance?) and it helps with smudges. So my three questions are: 1. Did you get stainless steel or the “stainless look” with your appliances. 2. Do you have a go-to brand with appliances? 3. What do you use to clean your appliances? Thank you so much in advance!!! xoxo ~ Lisa

    1. Thanks so much, Lisa–that’s so great to hear about the cabinets and cart! All of our appliances in this kitchen were existing when we moved in (so we don’t really have a go-to brand), but they’re stainless steel, and we just use stainless steel wipes to clean them. The wipes work great, but I can’t remember the exact name brand–sorry!


      1. Thank you! I’ll definitely look for some stainless steel wipes. I like the convenience of that. 🙂

  6. Those apple roses are spectacular! And of course your kitchen is just lovely, as always- love the fall touches with all the brass! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Beautiful!! Your home is lovely beyond lovely. I’d like to ask about the breakfast nook table, is it the Alixe Dining Table in white wash? (on Joss & Main) and is it 48in or 60in wide?
