Palmier cookies

Posted by Ana Franco on


  • 1 sheet of store-bought puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. Prepare the puff pastry:

    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry sheet into a rectangle, about 1/8 inch thick.
  3. Add vanilla sugar:

    • In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well until the vanilla is evenly distributed throughout the sugar.
    • Sprinkle half of the vanilla sugar evenly over the rolled-out puff pastry sheet, pressing it lightly into the pastry with your hands or a rolling pin.
  4. Fold the pastry:

    • Starting from one long edge of the rectangle, tightly roll the pastry toward the center, stopping halfway.
    • Repeat the rolling process from the opposite long edge, so both rolls meet in the center.
    • Press the two rolls together gently to seal.
  5. Slice the cookies:

    • Using a sharp knife, slice the rolled pastry crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices.
  6. Coat with sugar:

    • Dip each slice into the remaining vanilla sugar, coating both sides generously.
  7. Bake the cookies:

    • Place the coated palmier cookies on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them to expand.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown and crispy.
  8. Cool and serve:

    • Remove the baked palmier cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
    • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

Enjoy these delightful palmier cookies with vanilla as a sweet treat with your favorite hot beverage or as a crunchy snack on their own!
