Step 1: You will need
- 150 g ready-made puff pastry, rolled thinly and cut into a square
- 100 g sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 rolling pin
- 1 spoon
- 1 baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
- 1 knife
- 1 tray
Step 2: Mix the sugar and spice
Add the cinnamon to the sugar and mix them together.
Step 3: Coat the pastry
Take the pastry and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the top. Then gently spread it out with your hands
Finally roll the rolling pin over the surface to press the sugar in completely.
Turn the pastry over and do exactly the same thing on the other side.
Step 4: Fold the pastry
Fold the longest sides of the pastry inwards by about 2cm, and flatten with the rolling pin. Fold both sides over once more, sprinkle again with cinnamon sugar and roll.
Lastly, fold the pastry up completely and roll the rolling pin over for the last time.
Step 5: Slice the pastry
Cut the folded pastry into thin strips, making at least 20 individual palmiers. You can discard the untidy ends. Then turn them onto one side and place them on a tray.
Put the tray into the fridge and chill for 15 minutes.
Step 6: Bake the palmiers
Remove the palmiers from the fridge and arrange them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Leave about 2 to 3cm between each one as they will expand and open up to form their 'palm like' shape. Don't leave too much space as they'll spread out too much. Then place the tray in the centre of the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Step 7: Serve
Take the palmiers out of the oven, and transfer them to a plate to cool down.
Serve with tea or coffee at breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
