Homestead Apron and Apple Treat

Hello Friends!  I have an apron to share with you.  A friend of mine gave me this lovely homestead fabric and I thought that since she was moving into a new home and into a new kitchen I'd make her something new to wear in it.

I added some little eyelet style lace to accent it along with the two pockets.

I have also tried to make these sweet apple flowers with a butter pastry bottom.  I must say that it's not my thing to get them to roll nicely.  But.....they tasted so very yummy!  I will definitely use these ingredients, but in a different shape next time. :)  I do need to learn to make my own butter pastry.  Any tips?

Hello, love the apron so country and sweet. Your apple muffins are beautiful. Your friend will be so blessed. So glad you posted it! Had my first fire in the woodstove. Did you check on that ribbon embroidery yet? Hugs, Roxy

The cotton apron is so cute. :-) Of course, I like that. hehe.
Your apples look good to me too. What was the part you were having trouble rolling? The dough? I have heard that butter pastry should be made with *cold* butter in a cool kitchen. I would guess that applies to all types. Maybe that will help?

Oh yes...I also read/heard that you should add the cold water sparingly because too much water makes the dough heavy or tough.
