Palmiers

Palmiers de mañana

I made these simple pastries for Sunday breakfast. Our Sunday was full of things to do. We must buy some presents and many other things, and I thought that a good breakfast was nice to start our pretty hard Sunday. We must buy the last Christmas present in the mall. And in the end of the day we finished our Christmas tree.

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (about 8 ounces), thawed
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar

Palmiers

Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter two cookie sheets. Sprinkle some sugar on a surface. Unfold or unroll the pastry to make a 10-inch square. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon superfine sugar. Fold in two opposite sides of the pastry to meet in the center. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar and fold in the same sides again. Fold one half of the pastry over the other half. Slice the pastry crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Dip the cut sides into sugar and place the cookies cut-sides down 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar. 2. Bake, one sheet at a time, for about 12 minutes, or until just golden on the bottom. Remove from the oven and turn the pastries over. Bake for 5-7 minutes more, or until golden. Transfer to racks and let cool completely.
