I have been wanting to make these little treats for awhile and thought they'd be perfect for Valentine's Day.  I looked at Ina's recipe and Anne Burrell's and finally did an adaptation on Anne's. I loved the idea of both cinnamon and orange zest in the palmiers.   Here's how I made them:

Bloggy buddy Marsha from
sent me some Pomegranate Pizzazz herb tea!  It was
delicious with my palmiers. 
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon (Anne used 2)
1 t. orange zest (Anne used zest of 1 orange)
1/2  (17. 3 ounce) package (1 sheet) frozen puff pastry, thawed

Combine the sugar, cinnamon and orange zest in a bowl.  Sprinkle the sugar on a clean work surface.  Lay the puff pastry on top of the sugar and sprinkle remaining sugar on top of the pastry.

Using a rolling pin, roll the sugar into the dough and roll the dough into an even rectangle, about 1/8" thick.

Working from the short ends of the rectangle, roll up each end of the dough to meet in the middle.  Lay the rolls on top of each other and gently press to secure.  Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the dough into slices about 1/4" thick.  Lay the slices onto two parchment- lined or silpat-lined baking trays and bake for 12 minutes.  Turn the slices over and bake for another 6 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cool on a rack.

  5. Those palmiers look delish! I ahve made them bfore, but they weren't quite as neat.

  6. Hello Kitty
    I've never attempted to make palmiers but the new Italian bakery in town makes some delicious ones, amongst other things. The little tea tray with Valentine reds is nice.

  7. Hello Kitty, another wonderful recipe. These look so good! You are quite the little baker. I will have to wait to try them out, because we started a diet.

  8. Hi Kitty,

    Hugs to you,

  10. Hi Kitty,
    Your Palmiers look so yummy! Can you believe I've never had one and I've never made anything with puff pastry! I know I need to try it! Your tray looks so cheery with the pretty flowers and red mug! Wishing you a wonderful evening!

  11. They turned out cute Kitty! And tasty I'm sure, I love orange zest:@)

  12. Kitty, they are sweet in many ways! I've made them once, and they are so light that I could eat more than I should ;o) The tea sounds wonderful!

  13. My daughter just mentioned that I need to make these again. I've never made these with orange zest...sounds great!

  14. I have never made these but have heard of some of my recipe books. They look great perfect for Afternoon Tea too!

  15. Boy these look mouthwatering! Yum, cinnamon~ The orange zest sounds wonderful. The recipe sounds fairly simple, but the results are amazing. Thx for sharing~
    Happy Valentine'S Day~

  16. Why is it that I want to make every single thing you do???? These look so flaky & crunchy & I can totally imagine just exactly what they taste like. *sigh* I could gain wt. just looking at them. I hope to try them real soon.
    Thanks for sharing how you did them.


  17. You have inspired me to try those "frozen puff pastries" They sound easy and look so good. AND so beautifully presented! :) Love it!

  18. Oh how fun fun fun! I giggled when I saw your first photo, before reading anything. Your Palmiers remind me of owl's eyes...ha Then to see your gifted tea bag sitting up there...and that gorgeous bouquet of flowers. WOW! It's all VERY nice. Seems to be a very simple recipe that I hope to try soon. Pinned! Thanks for sharing.

  19. I love palmiers, especially when they are beautifully browned and caramely like yours are. Don't you just love puff pastry? There are so many wonderful things that can be done with it. Adding orange zest is a great idea.

  20. These look great and yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Hope mine come out as good as yours.


  21. Well, these don't look too difficult since I don't have to roll them all up individually! :) I'll give them a try...thanks!

    I'm hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you'd like!

    Have a great day!
