These Cinnamon Palmiers are beautiful little pastries or "cookies" that look so impressive and hard to make. But the truth is they only take three ingredients and they are simple! Enjoy!
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
1 C sugar
1 T cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 large sheet pans with either parchment paper or foil sprayed with nonstick spray. Sprinkle about 1/4 C sugar on a board and some of the cinnamon. Lay one puff pastry sheet on top of the sugar. Sprinkle about 1/4 C sugar and more cinnamon on top of the pastry sheet, being sure to fully cover the pastry with sugar. Roll the pastry into about a 13 x 11 rectangle. Next roll the two shorter sides to the middle of the pastry. It will look like this.
Repeat that entire process with the second sheet of puff pastry. Cut the rolls into about 1/4 inch slices. Lay the slices on the sheet trays being sure to leave room for them to grow and puff out. Bake them for 12 minutes. Remove them from the oven, flip each pastry over, and return them to the oven. Bake them for another 6 to 8 minutes or until they are browned and crispy.
