There’s no better way to show those special to you some love than by making them homemade Palmiers. Coming from the most romantic city, palmiers are easy to make, gluten free, and their light and flaky texture will everyone wanting more! There’s also so many variation; you can keep them plain, dip them in chocolate or add pink granulated sugar for that extra Valentine’s Day touch!
2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 sheet puff pastry, defrosted (Pillsbury or Pepperidge Farm)
- Optional: Cinnamon, Dark Chocolate Chips, Pink colored Sugar
Preheat the oven to 450 degree F. Combine the sugar and salt in a mixing bowl then spread 1 cup of sugar/ salt mixture on a flat surface (wooden or marble cutting board).
Unfold each sheet of puff pastry on the sugar and then pour ½ cup sugar mixture on top of the puff pastry and spread it evenly across. Roll the dough until it is 13 by 13 inches and the sugar is pressed into the pastry (on both top and bottom). Fold both sides of the pastry so they go halfway towards the middle. Fold both sides again so they meet in the middle and then finally fold one side over the other one so that you end up with 6 layers.
Place the second pastry sheet on the sugared board and repeat the same steps as above. Slice the dough ½ inch thick and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper 2 inches apart.
Bake for 6 minute *watching carefully* until they are caramelized and brown on the bottom. Flip them over using a spatula and bake for another 3-5 minutes until caramelized on the other side
Move them to a baking rack to let cool and enjoy!
