A while back, I received a coupon for a free pack of Pepperidge Farm puff pastries from Foodbuzz. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the puff pastries until I realized that Palmiers are made with puff pastries. I love palmiers, but I've never made them before.
I didn't want to just make normal ones though. I wanted to do something different. I found a recipe for nutella palmiers on My Baking Heart. It sounded delicious!
The cookies were easy to make since I was using an already prepared puff pastry sheet. The original recipe calls for chopped hazelnuts and nutella. I decided to skip the chopped hazelnuts because I didn't want the nuts to fall out of the cookies.
The cookies came out really yummy. They tasted a bit like chocolate croissants. They came out really cute looking too.
13 oz Puff Pastry, thawed
8 tbsp Nutella spread
1. Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a
rectangular shape (approximately 15 x 9 inches in size).
3. Spread the
Nutella evenly over the puff pastry with a knife. Roll both long ends so that they meet at the center of the dough.
Where the pieces meet, dampen the edges with a little water to join
4. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into thin slices, approximately 1/3 inch thick.
5. Place on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15
minutes, or until golden. When done, transfer to a wire rack to cool
