Put the apple slices in the lime juice water. Heat in microwave oven until they are softened. About 10 minutes. This makes the apple slices softer for easier way to arrange on top of the pie.

In a separate bowl combine melted margarine and jam sugar. Put the apple slices in the mixture. This way the slices get a nice glow, and they stack well together in the pedal arrangement.

Add the pedals from the outer circle towards the inner circle of the pie.

Bake the pie in 200 C oven for about 20-30. Turn the oven to 275 C and put the grill mode on. It gives nice color to the rose pedals. When slightly brown the pie is ready.
