I made them again a few weeks ago for a pot-luck party and had a lot of trouble keeping Tom away from them before we got to the party. These will be a great addition to any holiday party you may be going to over the next month. I wish I had remembered to take a photo of the finished product so you'll have to make due with the original one from the Martha Stewart website.
1 package of thawed puff pastry sheets (found in the frozen section)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (like thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano) Dried herbs work as well.
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon water
1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Flour working surfaces and roll out pastry puffs into 10" x 16" squares.
3. Fold the dough into thirds lengthwise (like you would fold a brochure). Cut the dough in half and place one half on top of the other.
4. Crosswise, cut the dough into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices.
6. Combine the egg yolk and water in a small bowl. Brush the palmiers with egg mixture.
7. Place palmiers onto parchment paper to prevent the bottoms from burning, and bake until golden brown - about 25 minutes.
Palmiers are super tasty when served warm.
