Well, well, well, look what we have here! A recipe for an Apple Rose Pie! Now, I have to admit, I’m not the greatest chef in the world, but I’m always down to give things a try. And let me tell you, this pie looks like it’s worth getting my hands dirty for.

First off, let’s talk about the presentation. The picture alone has me drooling. I mean, have you ever seen a pie so pretty?! It looks like a work of art. And let’s be real, if I can make something that looks even remotely close to that, my friends and family will be amazed. So, challenge accepted.

Now, let’s get into the nitty gritty. Here’s what you’ll need:


  • 1 pre-made pie crust (because let’s face it, we’re not all Martha Stewart)
  • 3 apples – peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves (fancy!)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces

Okay, okay, that’s quite the list. But if I do say so myself, it’s worth it. Let’s get to work.

First, preheat your oven to 375°F. Roll out your pie crust and gently place it into a 9-inch pie dish.

Next, heat the apricot preserves in a small saucepan until they’re nice and melted. Brush the melted preserves all over the inside of the crust – this will help keep it from getting soggy.

Now it’s time to work on those beautiful apple roses. Take your thinly sliced apple pieces and place them in a large bowl. Add in the granulated sugar, cinnamon, water, and lemon juice. Toss everything together until the apples are well coated.

Microwave the apples for about 5-7 minutes until they’re pliable. You should be able to bend them without them breaking. Drain any excess liquid from the apples.

Starting at the edge of the crust, take your apple slices and shape them into a rose. Gently press them into the crust, continuing all the way around until you have a beautiful flower of apples.

For the streusel topping, mix together the flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, and butter until it forms a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this on top of the apples.

Bake the pie for 45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender.

And there you have it, folks! One beautiful, delicious apple rose pie. Serve it up and prepare to impress.
