Palmier Cookies

Palmier Cookies
Without a doubt the easiest yet most elegant and seemingly time consuming cookie you possibly make and all from just two simple ingredients: a packet of shop bought puff pastry squares and some castor sugar.

Take a square of puff pastry and using a pastry brush , brush with a little tap warm water, sprinkle a work board or surface with sugar, ( you can add cinnamon or nutmeg for a festive version )put the square, wet side down onto the sugar, making sure it is coated evenly, then brush the side facing up with a little water and turn over, making sure both sides are evenly covered in sugar, start to roll as you would a swiss roll, and when you get to the middle stop and roll the other side so the two rolled sides meet in the middle, this sounds difficult but it really is quite simple.Once they are rolled, you may cut them into 1/2cm slices, and lay them on a baking try lined with baking parchment, place them in a moderately, pre heated, oven and cook until the sugar caramalises.Using a spatula carefully lift up turn and cook until the other side is also caramalised. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire cooling wrack and leave to cool.

Equally delicious with tea or coffee.
