Strawberry Palmiers

This is a very quick and easy recipe that’ll be sure to impress your loved ones this Valentines day, and they definitely look the part too!

Palmiers (pronounced “palm-yays”) are a type of French biscuit made from puff pastry and sugar, but in this addition I’ve added something a little sweeter and more colourful. I made these for a “date night” with two of my lovely friends, and with only 3 ingredients, it’s definitely a winner!

Check out the recipe below.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of all butter puff pastry
  • 3 – 4 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs strawberry jam

Method

  1. Sprinkle half the sugar on a large board, place the puff pastry on it and put remaining sugar on top.
  2. Press the sugar down so it sticks to the puff pastry.
  3. Spread the jam over one side of it, leaving a 1cm gap around the edges.
  4. Take one side of the pastry and roll it tightly halfway, then do the same for the other side so they meet in the centre.IMG_2212
  5. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190°C.  When firm, take the pastry log out of the freezer and cut about 1cm slices, pinching the edges slightly to make a heart shape.

8. Place on a baking paper lines tray and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly, then serve
