  4. Wash and core apples, then then cut into thin slices (using a mandolin slicer). Drizzle apple slices with lemon juice.
  5. Arrange the apple slices on the dough strips in slightly overlapping layers so that the peel protrudes slightly at the top and is level with the dough at the bottom.
  6. Roll up strips lengthwise to form roses; pinch dough at the bottom and place in muffin tin.
