These have a simple taste; cinnamon sugar is a must! They are beautiful for something different on a cookie plate. Rolling the edges works better than 'folding'. I had difficulty slicing them too; ended up using string to cut them like my Grandma always did when making cinnamon rolls. I've never heard of Palmiers and they didn't turn out quite like the photos here. But they're good! Be prepared for them to spread quite a lot in the oven; works better to refrigerate the cookie sheet of prepared cookies before baking.

HA! Did the white sugar on the bottom & cinnamon sugar on the top - rolled & chilled overnight in anticipation of an early guest. Even cut the parchment paper ahead of time - LOL. Sliced, cooked 7 minutes, flipped (had my doubts b/c the looked really floppy just as friend arrived) & cooked an additional 5 minutes. Crispy, sugary perfection with mugs of fresh rich coffee! Utter and complete success! Thanks for making me look so good when I am far too busy with seeding to cook! TYTYTYTTY! Will always keep this one around!
ps - neighbors were outside so I joined them with a plate of crispy sugary goodness - they were pretty darned impressed as well!

This recipe was great and easy! I added an equally simple frosting (just water, powdered sugar, vanilla) over the top and they're a hit!

Great cookies! I made mine using cinnamon sugar mix sprinkled on the top dough that's folded to the inside. I freeze the dough then just pull out a couple at a time to bake in my toaster oven. This will increase cooking time and cookies should be flipped halfway through baking. Great with coffee!

I make this recipe all the time, sometimes I add a very thin layer of really good jam before I roll the puff pastry. It makes a beautiful flavored cookie. So good!

EXCELLENT!! Soooooo EASY!! I have never worked with Puff Pastry before but I will from now on! Thank you so much for such a great introduction! I will be making these often. Maybe even sprikle the dough with chocolate chips before rolling next time so the chocolate gets between the layers! :) I'll let you know how that goses :)

These were great. I made them with cinnamon sugar and after cutting them all up froze them. I take out 4 in the morning and pop them in the oven for breakfast for my boyfriend and I. What a nice luxury, who could have thought it could be so easy. Thank you!

That's very good and easy, we make this a lot in france, you can try a "salted" version, you take the cinnamon and sugar off, and instead you use italian herbes, butter, cream cheese, roquefort .... for l'apéritif, it's so good !
