6 pink lady apples
1 large disk puff pastry
50 g + 50 g sugar

Lay out the puff pastry on a baking tray, keeping the baking paper backing. Lift the pastry up and sprinkle half of the sugar underneath. Sprinkle the semolina on top of the pastry, then arrange the apple slices on top in a rosette pattern.

Let it cool before serving: the caramel that forms on the underside of the pastry needs to set to unstick from the paper.
1 baking tray
1 chopping board
1 apple corer
