To create the roses, the plum slices are wrapped in puff pastry layered with a creamy marzipan, plum jam mixture.
The filling contains schmand which can be hard to find outside of Germany. Fortunately, a schmand substitute is easy to make. The recipe is included in the link below.
As a decorative finish, the pastries are sprinkled with powdered sugar. These beauties are a stunning addition to a Valentine's meal or any special occasion like Christmas or Mother's Day.
