Have you ever had a palmier?  Delicious, right?

Did you know they are so, so, so easy to make?

Seriously.  2 ingredients.  Even better, they look impressive, like you slaved away in the kitchen all day.  I even made little mini palmiers because my second sheet of puff pastry wasn't looking too hot.  I used a 1/3 of the sheet & I may just like the minis better :)

1 package puff pastry
~2 cups sugar

Unfold one sheet of puff pastry on a surface generously sprinkled with sugar.  Pour about 3/4 cup of sugar on top of the puff pastry and spread evenly.  Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a 12x12 square.  Roll two of the sides toward the middle, until the big roll looks kind of like a heart.  Cut slices just under 1/2" thick and lay on a baking sheet.  Give them some room, they'll puff up!  Bake at 40u0 degrees for 6 minutes, flip over, and then bake for another 4-6 minutes.  You want both sides to be golden brown, so adjust the baking time as necessary.  If your baking sheet is lined, you can let them cool on the sheet. If not, remove immediately to let cool.  These are best the day they are made!
