These classic cookies are also known as palmiers and are absolutely delicious! And you won’t believe how easy they are to make in your own kitchen. I like to use Vietnamese cinnamon, but you can use whatever cinnamon that you like.

  • 1 Large Egg (Room Temperature)
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 17.3 Ounces Puff Pastry Sheets
  1. In small-size bowl whisk together egg and 1 tablespoons water.
  2. In another small-size bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar mixture onto your work surface.
  4. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on top of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Brush pastry with egg and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Fold the top and bottom edges of the pastry sheet toward one another so they touch right in the middle, like a pamphlet. Use a rolling pin to roll them flat, packing the sugar and dough together. Then fold in half lengthwise, creating a long roll with multiple layers of dough ad sugar. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to set.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  8. Line two large-size baking sheets with parchment paper.
  9. When dough is set and oven is preheated, cut each pastry roll into 18 slices. Plae slices onto prepared baking sheets.
  10. Place in oven for 12 minutes until cookies are golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool.
