Palmiers

These are sweet, buttery, flaky goodness and you can make them with only two ingredients! Well, one of them is frozen puff pastry, but that's not cheating, right?! I am posting these just in time for Valentine's Day because I love how they look like cute little hearts! I don't usually do step by step pictures, but I thought it might be helpful with this recipe. So here goes!

1 pkg of frozen puff pastry
Sugar

1. Take one roll of puff pastry out of the freezer and let come to almost room temperature.
2. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar on table or flat surface. Unfold the pastry sheet and place it on the sugar. Sprinkle another 1/4 of sugar on top of the pastry sheet. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough just slightly. You mostly just want to work the sugar into the dough a bit.
3. Begin rolling the sides in starting with about 1/2 an inch. Continue rolling until they meet in the middle. Roll one side on top of the others so that the rolls are stacked. Slice the roll into about 1/2 inch slices.
4. Place the slices on a parchment covered baking sheet, leaving some space between them. Sprinkle the tops with a little more sugar. Place them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake straight from the refrigerator for 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip them over with a spatula. Return to the oven for 6-8 more minutes or until they are golden and caramelized. Cool on wire rack.

NOW for the step by step pics with instructions. I took the pics with my phone so they aren't the best, but you get the idea. :)

 Take your puff pastry out of the freezer and let come to almost room temperature. You want to be able to work with it but it still needs to be cold. Here is the puff pastry I used. It comes with 2 rolls. You only work with one roll at a time, so you can just use one and save the other for something else, or do the second one when you have finished with the first.


 Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar on table or flat surface.

Unfold 1 pastry sheet and place it on the sugar. Sprinkle another 1/4 of sugar on top of the pastry sheet.

Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough just slightly. You mostly just want to work the sugar into the dough a bit.

Begin rolling the sides in starting with about 1/2 an inch.

Continue rolling until they meet in the middle.

Roll one side on top of the others so that the rolls are stacked.

Slice the roll into about 1/2 inch slices. If they fall apart a little, just roll them back up. I got 16 slices from this roll.

Place the slices on a parchment covered baking sheet, leaving some space between them. Sprinkle the tops with a little more sugar. Place them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. After the 15 minutes is up, put the baking sheet straight into the oven and bake for 8 minutes.


After they have baked for 8 minutes, remove them from the oven and flip them over with a spatula. I had to fix a couple that unrolled a little but be careful because that sugar will burn you! Return to the oven for 6-8 more minutes or until they are golden and caramelized. Cool on wire rack.
