    If you are using a mandolin, your apple slices should be fairly soft. If you cut them with a knife and the strips are still too solid, place them in a bowl and add a teaspoon of cane sugar. Heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds depending on thickness. 

    Mix the cane sugar from Guadeloupe and cinnamon. Cut the puff pastry widthwise to obtain 8 strips of about 25 cm by 5 cm. Sprinkle each rectangle with cinnamon sugar. 

    Step 2

    Place the apple slices along the pastry, leaving 3 cm overhanging. Fold the 3 cm of dough over the apples.  Then roll up the dough on itself. Put 2 drops of water to glue the dough and allow the rose to hold well.  

    Step 3
