Ingredients
  

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry 1/2 pound thawed but chilled
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • cinnamon or cocoa powder optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Dust your work surface (cutting board, butchers block or counter) liberally with sugar.
  • Place thawed puff pastry sheet on top of sugar.
  • Sprinkle top of puff pastry with a bit of sugar, gently spread and even out with your hand.
  • Roll out pastry to a rectangle, about 1/8" thickness.
  • Find the center of your pastry. Tightly, but gently, roll each long side to the center of the pastry. The two sides will meet in the center.
  • Dust a plate or cutting board with sugar, carefully transfer rolled puff pastry onto it, and chill in fridge for about 15 minutes.
  • While waiting, fill a small bowl with remaining sugar and a sprinkle of cocoa powder & cinnamon (if desired).
  • Return pastry back to work surface. Cut pastry roll into 12 slices.
  • Gently dip both sides of the slices in sugar and transfer to cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 6 - 8 minutes, flip and bake another 5 - 8 minutes until golden brown.
  • Let palmiers rest for a minute on cookie sheet then transfer to wire rack and cool.
  • Enjoy!
