Just arrived in France and No better way to adjust to making recipes again than with the help of some family members :0)
My aunt loves to bake the easy way and today she is showing me how to make Palmiers, the easiest pastry treat ever!
1 roll pre-made good quality puff pastry (250 grams)
granulated sugar (80 grams)
10 minutes in the oven at 240 Celsius ( 464 F)
Notes: cut the pastry in pieces
In this video, I get a hand from my aunt to make this delicious pastry. Also called ‘coeur de France’ because of their heart shape. Literally just puff pastry and sugar (ok, quite a lot of sugar), it could be the most simple pastry you ever make - but the result is divine.
Palmiers are made from puff pastry, a laminated dough similar to the dough used for croissant, but without the yeast. Puff pastry is made with alternating layers of dough and butter, rolled and folded over to create possibly hundreds of flaky layers.
