This is one of the easiest thing I have ever baked. My lil one is so fond of nutella that she can start her day with nutella bread and end her day with nutella paratha. She has caught flu and was at home today so I though of making these cute palmiers to cheer her up. Well..needless to say she enjoyed these a lot and is now demanding me to make some more to take to school tomorrow.
Palmiers is a french cookie also known as elephant ear cookie. These were very cute and delicious. To get good elephant ear shaped goodies the puff pastry sheets should be rolled out rectangular in shape but I had square sheets so got not so perfect palmiers.
Puff Pastry Sheets
Thaw the puff pastry sheets according to the instructions given in the package. Spread nutella on the sheet. Take longer side of the sheet and start rolling inward and stop in the middle then roll inwards from the other side. Apply little water to join where the rolls are meeting in the middle.
With knife cut the dough in approximately 1/2 inch thick slices.
Place the palmiers in baking sheet leaving enough space in between. Bake the palmiers in pre heated oven at 200 deg C for 10-15 minutes or till the puff pastry turns golden.
