I fall in love with Palmier after having my cuppa at one of the cafe at Taman Desa.
When I saw Mel uploaded a beautiful Palmier photo on her facebook, I was so excited and quickly asked her for the recipe. She gladly shared the link with me which is from her sister's blog called "My Happy Apron". Thank you very much to Mel and her sister Sandy for this lovely sharing.
(Recipe adapted from : My Happy Apron with slightly changes)
1 sheet puff pastry (I use 4 pieces of Kawan brand puff pastry square)
1/4 cup castor sugar (50g)
3 Tbsp melted butter (15-20g)
- Sprinkle some of the sugar over your workstation. Lay out the puff pastry sheet over the sugar and gently press on it to let the sugar stick on to the bottom. (I use rolling pin to roll out the pastry)
- Lightly brush melted butter on the pastry and sprinkle some of the sugar over it.
- Fold one edge of the pastry towards the centre (about 1/4 of the sheet), and repeat for the opposite end. Fold over both ends again so that they meet in the middle.
- Lastly, fold the two sides together and press gently. Chill the pastry in the fridge for 30 mins.
- Remove the pastry from the fridge and using a sharp knife, cut it into strips of about 1.25cm wide. Lightly brush melted butter on both sides and sprinkle a little sugar over them.
- Bake at 200C for 12-15 mins or until the pastry has puffed up and turn golden brown, then flip them over with a spatula and bake for another 3-5 minutes (keep a watchful eye so that they don't get burnt!). Transfer to a baking rack to cool.
