French Palmiers

Palmiers in french means palm tree. Palmiers is also commonly known as elephant ears or palm leaves. They are made from puff pastry, a laminated dough similar to the dough used for croissant, but without the yeast. Puff pastry is alternating layers of dough and melted butter. The puff pastry is rolled out, coated with sugar, and then the two sides are rolled up together so that they meet in the middle, making a roll that is then cut into about 1/4" slices and baked. Usually it is rolled in sugar before baking


Ready made Puff pastry - 1 pkt
Granulated Sugar - 1/2 + 1/2 cup
One egg yolk + milk - wash


yield - 25 per sheet

Use one sheet of puff pastry,Thaw the sheet until workable temperature.Should not be in room temperature since it will start sticking.
Roll out the puff pastry into a bigger rectangle.Sprinkle 1/2 cup of  sugar and roll over it until in-corporated.
Fold the sheets twice from either ends,give an egg wash and gently press. Cut the sheets into 1/2 inches as shown.

Gently press the end to get the shape.Bake either sides approximately 7-8 mins
