These is a 2 ingredient, 10 minute recipe.. Perfect for a brunch or if you want to make something sweet to enjoy with tea! This recipe makes 18-20 palmiers. To make this recipe you will need:
1 sheet of puff pastry
1/3 cup sugar
Ok! I had no idea palmiers were THIS easy to make.. And you can make sweet or salty (like cheesy palmiers.. YUM). I also love the fact that they are made with puff pastry because this is my secret weapon for quick appetizers and desserts…My friend Beatriz showed me how to make these and honestly, they are a great way to impress a crowd or to make a quick sweet if you have an unexpected visitor…
So! First step? Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.. Now in a clean surface, spread the sugar. I recommend to use a coarse sugar and brown sugar for an even tastier palmier… I actually made these with coconut sugar and they turned DELICIOUS…!
Now you will need to cover your rolled puff pastry with the sugar in both sides of course….
The final step? Folding your palmiers.. They are made by folding the left and right sides of the puff pastry to the middle..
Then you will fold the dough in half (again) length-wise..
Continue doing so until you have the desire length of your palmiers.. Once you slice the sheet into individual cookies, you will see the “palm” shape. This means that the more folds, the cuter the palm will be!
Now you can proceed to slice them.. I cut mine 1-inch wide..
Now you set them in a greased cookie sheet (or you can use parchment paper). Make sure they are a few inches apart! You can also sprinkle them with extra sugar if you like (I did not)..
Now they go in the oven for about 7-10 minutes on one side.. Make sure you keep a close eye on these because they can burn really easily.. Once you see they look cooked on one side, flip them and cook them for another 2-4 minutes on the other side until they are golden..
I recommend that you transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely and the sugar tends to adhere to the sheet and if you wait to cool them in the cooking sheet it might be harder to lift them off! They will become crispier as they cool off.. Cool for 10 minutes before eating (I obviously did not way until they cooled off to try them).. SO YUMMIE! And the house smells incredible after you make them!
