Nutella Palmiers – Day 12

My new favorite! Nutella Palmiers! And there isn’t an easier recipe than this. All you need is a package of  frozen puff pastry and a jar of Nutella. Really! That’s all!

My inspiration began while I was reading a circular from our local grocery store with a recipe for cinnamon palmiers. It sounded so easy and so delicious that I thought why not make it with something different, like my favorite spread, Nutella. And it worked better than I had thought. It seems to fit the roll as a cookie or as a sweet breakfast treat.

I wasn’t quite sure when I started what a palmier was so, of course, I had to look it up. It is actually a French word that means palm tree because the pastry is baked in the shape of a palm tree or, some say, a butterfly. Elsewhere it is known as elephant ears, palm leaves, french hearts or glasses. But no matter what it is called, it is really scrumptious.

There’s really not much to making this bakery favorite. First open the pastry sheet. Then spread with Nutella. Roll into a log and refrigerate.

When you’re ready to bake, remove from refrigerator and cut into 1/2″ thick slices. Place on cookie sheet and bake.

Wait until their cool, if you can, and have for breakfast or a snack. They’re also great for giving as gifts and holiday party cookie trays.

Let me know if you try it out. And I’m up for any ideas on other foods to make with these handy little puff pastries. In fact, soon you may see an appetizer recipe on this blog using puff pastry with broccoli and cheese.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 17.3-oz package frozen puff pastry, thawed (I used Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets)
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • Coarse sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Spray parchment paper with a nonstick spray.
  2. Open a pastry sheet and lay on one of the lined cookie sheets. Spread 1/2 cup of Nutella on pastry sheet, covering from edge to edge.
  3. Starting with the long edge, roll the pastry towards the middle. Stop when you reach the center. Now roll the other side until both sides meet in the middle. Brush the center where the two sides meet with a little water and gently press together.
  4. Place the rolled pastry on a piece of plastic wrap and roll up tightly. Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour. This will make it easier to cut.
  5. Repeat steps with other pastry sheet.
  6. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Remove one of the palmier rolls from the refrigerator. Unwrap and place on a cutting board. With a very sharp thin-bladed knife, cut into 1/2" thick slices. Place each slice cut side down on the prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and sprinkle with coarse sugar (optional). Let cool completely before storing in airtight container.
