Cinnamon Palmiers

Cinnamon Palmiers is a fancy name for left over puff pastry sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and baked.

When I was a child, I recall my father making a similar treat from left over pie dough. This is a great way to use all your puff pastry or pie dough scraps; no matter how small they are.

Spread dough strips with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar

Fold the long edge to the center line

Fold opposite edge to center line also. Then fold in half along the center line.

Cut into finger width slices

Place sliced side up/down on a baking sheet; well spaced


Fold carefully!

Use a sharp knife to slice for a clean edge.

Keep your pastry cold for best results.

Line your baking pans with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

If you want some, set some aside because these things disappear quickly!

    • Cheers to you too! They are quite good if you include raisins or dried cranberries and almonds or pecans too.
      For some reason I always think about my Dad when I make and eat these.
      Hope you enjoy them!

    • Puff pastry can be dangerous stuff! Whenever I am in the same room with it, it jumps straight into my mouth.
      We dropped some into the fryer in school yesterday. That puff pastry became lethal, imagine fried puff pastry, warm with cinnamon sugar. . . no hope for a diet with this stuff around!
