How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Palmiers

  • Mix all the ingredients of dough together well till you get a soft ball of dough.
  • Flatten into a square and cover with cling film and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  • For the floured butter, mix butter and flour together till well blended.
  • Flatten it out to a rectangle where the length is double the size of the dough.
  • Cover with cling film and refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Sprinkle the work surface with some flour.
  • Place the floured butter and place the dough on top of the floured butter on either left or right side.
  • Fold the top 1/3 of the beurre manie down, then fold the whole lot in half.
  • Roll out a little in both directions to speed cooling. Cling film it and pop in the fridge until well chilled.
  • Give the dough a 1/4 turn. Roll out.
  • Fold the top down and the bottom up to meet at the centre.
  • Fold the whole lot in half.
  • Roll out a little and chill as usual.
  • Repeat the procedure and chill.
  • The puff pastry is ready.
  • For the cinnamon-sugar Palmiers:
  • Mix the sugar with cinnamon well and keep aside.
  • Sprinkle some sugar mixture on the work surface.
  • Roll out the puff pastry into a rectangle (15 inch x 12 inch).
  • Sprinkle the sugar cinnamon mixture generously to form a thin layer.
  • Starting at the long ends of the rectangle, loosely roll each side inward until they meet in the middle.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  • Slice the pastry crosswise into 1/4-inch palmiers - they'll look like little scrolls - and arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake them for 12-15 minutes, until they puff and turn golden brown.
  • Remove from baking sheet and let it cool completely before serving.
