Palmier cookies are one of my favorite things to make because they don’t take much. It’s just three ingredients and they taste amazing. They are super easy to make and you can even prep them in advance. I love them for any type of shower or party since they are simple and everyone loves them. The sweetness of the sanding sugar goes with the light flaky texture of the puff pastry so well. The buttery sweet combination is just delicious. I hope you get a chance to make these tasty cookies and you love them as much as I do.
- 2T Unsalted Butter Melted (You will not need all of it)
- Sanding Sugar or Decorative Sugar- These are large sugar crystals that don't melt down in the oven.
- 1 sheet Puff Pastry
- Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Unroll your puff pastry sheet.
- Brush one side of the puff pastry with melted butter. Just put enough to lightly coat the sheet. You will not need all of the butter.
- Sprinkle your sanding sugar on top. You just want medium coverage and an even layer.
- Starting on the long edge of your puff pastry begin rolling it until you get to the middle of the sheet.
- Now roll the other side of your puff pastry and the two rolls should meet in the middle.
- At this point your puff pastry roll should still be semi cold. If its not put it in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes. You don't want it frozen. You just want it cold.
- Take a knife and begin cutting your cookies about a quarter of an inch thick.
- Place the cookies on a lined or sprayed baking sheet. Give them space to spread a little and don't put them too close together.
- Bake the cookies until they begin to turn golden brown on the edges. About 25 minutes.
- Take them out and they are ready to enjoy!
- Sanding Sugar or Decorative Sugar- These are large sugar crystals that don't melt down in the oven. You can find them at the grocery store in the baking isle. The will more than likely say decorative sugar on the container and come in a variety of colors.
