Palmiers – French Pastry Treats

Palmiers – French Pastry Treats


Palmiers, also known as palm leaves or elephant ears, are a type of French pastry. The word “palmier” means “palm tree” in French, and the pastry gets its name from its resemblance to a palm leaf or elephant ear shape.

Palmiers are made from puff pastry that is rolled out and sprinkled with sugar. The pastry is then folded in a way that creates a series of thin layers, resulting in a crisp and flaky texture. The sugar caramelizes during baking, giving the palmiers a sweet and slightly caramelized flavor.

To make palmiers, the puff pastry is typically rolled out into a rectangle, and then both sides are folded towards the center until they meet in the middle. The pastry is then folded in half again, and the resulting log is sliced into thin pieces. These slices are then placed on a baking sheet, and the pastry is baked until golden brown and crispy.

Palmiers are a popular treat in France and can be enjoyed as a sweet snack or dessert. They are often served with tea or coffee and can be found in bakeries and pastry shops worldwide.
