Mushroom Palmiers

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by breezermom

I first had these at my first married "grown up" party, newly-wed and going to hubby's work party. I was 19 years old, and scared to death! But these treats were delicious and led to a conversation with the boss's wife about different varieties of mushrooms....these definitely eased my way into the scary grown-up world! Usually, Palmiers are a sweet treat. Instead, this is a delicious appetizer, and is really unique, in that they turn out in a figure 8. The steam created by the moisture in the butter and mushrooms causes the dough to puff, making this flaky pastry even more flaky! Prep time does not include thawing time for the pastry sheets, but does include the chilling time!

Really delicious and so cute!! The mushroom palmiers are perfect for any get-together or party and you can store them in the fridge until ready to bake off. Very impressive and equally yummy! I baked one of the rolls and have one in the fridge for later. Will definitely place this recipe on my short list for parties and family functions. Made for the Everyday is a Holiday tag, June, 2012.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute mushrooms, onion, and garlic in butter in a skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the liquid evaporates and the vegetables are tender. Add the flour, thyme, and lemon juice; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper; let cool.
  2. Place 1 pastry sheet on your work surface; spread 1/3 of the mushroom mixture evenly over the pastry. Roll up the pastry, jellyroll fashion, starting at the short side, ending at the middle of the pastry. Roll up the remaining pastry, starting at the remaining short side until both rolls meet.
  3. Repeat the procedure twice with the remaining puff pastry and mushroom mixture. Cover and chill at least 1 hour, or until firm.
  4. Once the rolls are firm, cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices. The slices will resemble a figure 8 if rolled correctly.) Place the slices, cut side down, 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Combine eggs and water in a small bowl, stirring well. Brush slices with the egg mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
