Gentle Friends as usual I got a wild hair about baking something and thought to myself - "hey, self... you like palmiers so why not make some." So I spent about a millisecond on the Internet and found Ina Garten's super easy recipe for them. Don't you just love Ina, we do at our house. And, when she came to SF for a book signing you couldn't stir the crowd with a stick there were so many fans there!! But, back to the cookie...
So, I hauled it to the store and picked up some puff pastry (that's all there is to this) I already had the sugar - It comes frozen so I let it thaw out over night and made up a double batch of them yesterday. Here's some snaps....
... after rolling out the puff pastry on sugar and covering with sugar I sliced off pieces and they look kind of sad all pale and anemic on the baking sheet.
After about 2/3's of the baking time in the oven you flip them over to caramelize the sugar on the other side.... yes, they do stick to the flipper!! I found that tongs worked lots better to flip them.
After cooling off here they are - all crunchy deliciousness!! They go great with a cup of coffee. You can add a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to jazz them up a bit or use Parmesan cheese instead of sugar for savory palmiers. You just can't beat a super easy cookie like these !!
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!
