Plum Roses Marzipan Pastries

Raise your hand if those roses shaped tarts created from apples that have been showing up everywhere on the internet in the past months make you go "ooh".  Why limit the technique to apples?  Here is another version with a fresh red plum twist.

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.
