Palmiers/Elephant Ears/Palmier Cookies

Palmiers or elephant ears are heart shaped pastry with flaky and crispy layers,made using the pastry sheet.Couple of times I bought this one from shop and kids loved it.Its in my to do list since long time,but wanted to try it with homemade puff pastry.But whenever I make puff pastry,ended up in making veggie puff or egg puff.
Last week I made a batch of puff pastry to make cream horns.With the leftover pastry I tried the palmiers.It came out so perfect with a crispy outer with caramelized sugar.Off to the recipe...........


    Basic Information

    Preparation time ~ 20 minutes
    Cooking time ~ 20 minutes
    Makes ~  16-18


Puff Pastry1/2 sheet
Brown sugar1/4-1/3 cup
White sugar1-2 tbs
All purpose flour/maida1-2 tbs(for dusting)


  • Thaw the puff pastry if its frozen.Roll it to thin sheet of 12 x 8 size,using a rolling pin on a floured surface.Now sprinkle the brown sugar evenly on the rolled pastry sheet.Gently roll it with the rolling pin so that the sugar can stick to the pastry.Fold from the one edge till the middle of dough.Fold the same way for the other side and both the folded part meet in the middle.

  • Press it gently so that both the ends stick togetherand slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Press it slightly and keep it on a lined baking tray.If needed roll the cut slice on sugar.Continue for the rest,sprinkle sugar on the top of the sliced palmiers if desired..Preheat the oven at 400 F and bake it for 10 minutes,then flip the palmiers to the other side and bake it for another 10 minutes.Transfer it to a wire rack and sprinkle white sugar on the top when it still hot.Let it cool down completely.

  • Store it in an air tight container for 2-3 days

  • After sprinkle the sugar and roll into log,keep it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes if its too sticky and difficult to slice.
  • If you want a sweeter version then sprinkle some sugar along with the flour while rolling the sheet..
