Palmiers, baby!


last sunday was mothers day.
What have you guys done to spoil your mom?

My mama got an enormous brunch.
I made indulgent cinnamon rolls and roasted peaches with a crumble topping.
They were totally worth the three full hours {!} of work.
My sisters made amazing scones with clotted cream and jam, 
a fancy fruit salad and freshly squeezed orange juice...

For my mother-in-law I wanted to make something simple and easy,
something that doesn't require hours of work or complicated ingredients like yeast.
Still, I wanted to win her heart with something sweet and cute.
Well, I'm glad to tell you these little heart-shaped palmiers did the work, baby!
It's hard to believe these crispy puffy cookies require only three ingredients and three minutes of work.





Palmiers, baby!
Adapted, barely, from I am a food blog

1 sheet of puff pastry
60g granulated sugar {1/4 cup} + 1 T
1 T cinnamon

one: preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
two: combine the sugar and cinnamon.
three: dust your work area with half of the sugar mixture. 
four: roll out the sheet of puff pastry above it. Spread the remaining sugar evenly on top of the puff pastry. 
five: use a rolling pin to gently{!} roll the sugar into the pastry.
six: fold two sides of the square towards the center so they go halfway to the middle. 
seven: fold them again so the two folds meet exactly at the middle of the dough.
eight: fold 1 half over the other half as though closing a book. 
nine: starting at one end, cut off pieces of the log, in slices about half a cm {1/4 inch} in thickness.
ten: place strips, cut side up, on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. they will increase size dramatically, so leave plenty of room between each cookie.
eleven: sprinkle over 1 T of sugar.
twelve: bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until golden and caramelized.





Don't you just love these tiles? The photos are taken in the kitchen of my mother in law.

Dankje, Ana!
Ik ben blij te horen dat Filipe ze niet allemaal in zijn eentje opat.
