Palmiers

PNP palmier a-33
Palmiers; A cookie made of butter and sugar! And a little flour.
Irresistibly eatable. Don't make them if you don't want to be tempted. I'd call these Christmas cookies but I know there won't be any around by Christmas.

Get out about 14 oz of Puff Pastry dough or just cut off about a third of it. Sprinkle a clean work surface with half the sugar. Place dough over sugar, and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Using a rolling pin, gently press sugar into dough, rolling out dough slightly; rotate dough frequently to prevent sticking.

With longer side of dough toward you, fold over edge, and roll tightly with your hands until you reach the middle. Turn dough so the unrolled edge is toward you, and roll again, meeting first roll in center. Chill dough in refrigerator 1 hour.

Charles is going to be extremely excited and SICK! that these are so easy... he'll have me make them immediately. These were the secret at the bottom of the tin and Charles was so sad they were all gone... :)If he knows it's just the dough and sugar, I bet he'll say "no way" but crave and think and crave and think... then relent. :)
