Is it a pig’s ear? An elephant ear? A palm leaf? These are the terms used to describe palmiers. So, what exactly are they?
Forgive me now if I overwhelm you with lots of versions of this pastry. They are just so simple to make, and I cannot get enough of them!
I actually called them palmers for the longest time. Apparently, I was reading the name wrong! I did not know the actual name until I watched Ina Gartner on a YouTube video making palmiers before I realized I was saying it incorrectly! Duh?
Anyways, they have been on my bucket list for at least a year, and I just never got around to making them until now! I used to see them all the time on other food sites.
You can find sweet versions and savory versions, but I knew that I wanted to make mine sweet. Maybe next time I will go savory. What do you think?
I went searching for a good recipe and video. I am such a visual person that sometimes I need step-by-step instructions (like in these peanut butter stuffed cookies) in order to get me through a recipe.
I watched the YouTube video because I felt like I needed guidance in how to roll them and cut them. I still somehow managed to cut them too big!
A few simple ingredients are all you need in order to make these! So what are you waiting for? Bake! ENJOY!
