Palmiers

This week's theme at I Heart Cooking Clubs is A Helping Hand. Ina Garten loves to utilize store-bought ingredients. I chose puff pastry as my helping hand ingredient. Ina declares that these palmiers are surprisingly simple as long as you start with pre-made puff pastry. Is there any other kind?


Palmiers or elephant ears are puff pastry, rolled out on sugar, folded, cut and baked until the sugar caramelizes. They were simple to make and an ideal dessert for the busy holiday season. Next time I will try them with a little cinnamon on the inside. These were a popular treat in my house and are quickly disappearing.

Elephant Ears (Palmiers) page 197 and available from the Food Network.

  1. Palmiers were some of my favorite pastries I would buy before I knew how to bake. Haven't thought about them for a while. You've showed me a quick way to whip some up. Thank you! Happy holidays.

  2. I'm so glad someone chose to make these! Looking through her books I thought this has to be the perfect recipe for the helping hand theme. Puff pastry is hands down the biggest helping hand. They look delicious!

  3. I love Palmiers--they are decadently dangerous because they feel light and you cant stop eating them. ;-) Perfect for the helping hand theme.
