To decorate a fruit tart with apple rosettes, as Jennifer Yee did in issue 137 for the Apple Rosette Tart with Maple Cream recipe, first microwave the apple slices as directed below to make them malleable, and then get rolling. Click on the photos for step-by-step rolling directions.

Microwaved apples
Cut the cheeks off 3 or 4 apples (I like “mountain rose” apples) and slice the cheeks very thinly. evenly spread the slices onto a microwave-safe plate and microwave in 30-second intervals until soft and pliable, about 2 minutes. Let
cool slightly before handling.
