Menu Monday: Palmiers


Seriously the easiest cookies to make. Two ingredients. Parchment paper and an oven. All you'll need to wash is a knife, measuring cup and cutting board. OK, maybe the baking sheet too. But hear me out. Palmiers, you know those flaky, crisp and sweet from the sugar pastries? These are an easy peasy way to make them and on the bottom you get a crisp caramelized sugar that is just DELISH.

Use a good puff pastry, find the one that has the shortest ingredient list.

1 box thawed Puff pastry
Granulated sugar
Parchment paper

Take out one sheet of puff pastry out and unfold it. The puff pastry should be about 10x12 inches. Liberally sprinkle granulated sugar on a cutting board or clean surface. Place the pastry on top.
Press down so that the sugar will stick to the bottom of the pastry.








Sprinkle more sugar on top of the pastry, then fold in the two sides to meet at the middle. Press gently to make sure the sugar sticks to the pastry.




Sprinkle the top again with sugar and fold the two sides into the middle once more. Fold the two halves together like you're closing a book. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
Repeat with the other sheet of puff pastry.
Chill for 30 minutes.





Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the pastry into about 1 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle with more sugar. Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
