PETITE CLEMENTINE PALMIERS
Hey there! I’m Trang and I’m happy to be a regular contributor here on All She Cooks starting this month. You can find me blogging over at Wild Wild Whisk in my spare time. 😊 My specialty is baked goods, but I’m hoping to use this platform to share things beyond butter, flour and sugar. For the past couple weeks, June gloom has been in full force where I am: grey sky, occasional drizzle with only a few rare moments of sunshine. Even though all the bright berries are now in season, I needed an uplifting and invigorating citrus kind of pick me up. Enter these Petite Clementine Palmiers.
This clementine palmiers recipe utilizes store bought puff pastry dough, which makes it extremely effortless. It is an absolute no fuss recipe that you can whip up in less than half an hour, whenever you need a little cure for the blues. The best part about this is you are not limited to just clementine. You can easily customize the citrus sugar using orange zest, lemon zest, grape fruit zest, or anything you have on hand at the time.
If you’re not feeling like citrus for any reason, omit the zest to make simple sugar palmiers. Or you can substitute the zest out for a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon and you’ll have yourself some cinnamon palmiers. Again, this recipe is so simple and adaptable, you can easily customize it to your heart’s desire.
You can use any brand of puff pastry dough, even homemade if you are up for the task. For this recipe, I used Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheet since that’s always conveniently available at my local grocery store. The package comes with two sheets but I only used one sheet, since that already yields plenty. And you can use the second sheet to make a different flavor next time. 😉
Happy baking! xo Trang
