Having just got back from visiting my parents overseas recently I found myself missing hanging out with dad. So the other day, I decided to make palmiers which was something he taught me when I was young. It is an easy recipe, a great lunch box snack, and quite moreish too!
1 sheet puff pastry, 24cm x 24cm 1/4 caster sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 200C.
Sift about half of the sugar over your workbench and place the puff pastry on top of the sugar.
Brush the melted butter on the pastry and sift the other half of the sugar over the pastry.
Fold one side, stopping at about 1/4 of the pastry. Do the same with the opposite side.
Fold both sides inwards again to meet at the centre. Then press the two sides together and let the pastry chill in the fridge for at least half an hour so it's not too soft.
Cut pastry into 1cm strips and brush melted butter onto each side. Separate the two wings slightly.
Place baking paper on baking tray and place the palmiers on the tray leaving about 5cm between each one.
Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, turning once in the last 10 minutes. They should turn golden brown. Once done, allow them to cool on a cooling rack before serving.
