Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle work surface lightly with granulated sugar. Lay one sheet of puff pastry flat on surface and sprinkle evenly with about 3 tablespoons granulated sugar. Beginning at one side, fold in dough, 1/2 inch at a time, to the center of the square. Repeat to fold in the other side so the two rolls are touching.

  • With a sharp knife, cut roll crosswise into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lay cookies flat, 1 inch apart, on buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Repeat to fold and slice remaining sheet of puff pastry; arrange cookies on baking sheets. Sprinkle cookies generously with large-crystal decorating sugar (or more granulated sugar).

  • Bake cookies in a 375° oven until golden brown all over, 18 to 22 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. With a wide spatula, transfer palmiers to racks to cool completely.
