Cucina Casalingo's Note:
When one thinks of palmiers – the tiny scroll-like pastries - sweet, flaky cookies come to mind. While these are flaky and delicate like the original, that’s where the similarities end. This recipe for basil palmiers uses a pesto-like filling of fresh basil and garlic for a wonderful, savory flavor.

- 1Preheat an oven to 400°F
- 2Pulse together the basil, garlic, and olive oil until it forms a finely textured paste.
- 3Roll the pastry dough into a large rectangle, about 15-inches by 12-inches.
- 4Using a pastry brush or spoon, spread the basil paste in a thin, even layer over the dough.
- 5Starting at the long ends of the rectangle, loosely roll each side inward until they meet in the middle.
- 6To hold difficult pastry together, brush it with the egg, if needed.
- 7Slice the pastry crosswise into 1/4-inch palmiers – they’ll look like little scrolls - and arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- 8Sprinkle them with the ground black pepper and bake them for 12-15 minutes, until they puff and turn golden brown.
- 9Remove them from the baking sheet and serve warm or at room temperature.
- 10Variation: Sprinkle 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese over the basil paste and dough before rolling it into palmiers.
