You guys! I am so excited  to share this winner of a dessert with you! I have had "apple roses" on my huge list of recipes that I want to make for forever but was convinced that I would not be able to do it. See, I am not a baker. I lack the patience it takes for just about everything with baking and am not necessarily artistic. These apple roses are so easy to make though that anyone could do it, really!

To make the apple roses, you just take a peeler to an apple- I used a pink lady apple and a gala apple. You start peeling around the apple- not just the skin but the flesh too, until you have about a 6-10 inch piece of apple. Then, you just start rolling it up until it looks like a flower. Ta da! Magic!

I call these 3-ingredient because that is how I made them but if you want a sweeter dessert, you can add a bit of honey. If you don't plan to eat them right away, squeeze a bit of lemon juice on top before baking along with the honey.

My plan when making these was to buy puff pastry but it was super expensive. I saw these mini phyllo cups for fraction of the cost and thought that they would be even better for this recipe. I was right! Also, two of the mini phyllo cups were only 30 calories helping to make this quite a light dessert. The filling is just drippy peanut butter. When you bake them up, they taste delicious with all of the sweet and melted peanut butter. So easy, healthy and delicious.
