Recipe: Cinnamon Palmiers/ Cinnamon Pastry things | Blogmas Day 8

by - December 18, 2017


Cinnamon is the perfect winter spice. A little bit of cinnamon in the air brings back a thousand warm and cosy memories. 

Cinnamon Palmiers are my favourite things to make! They’re easy, simple and extremely tasty. I originally got the recipe somewhere off the internet but I can no longer find the original site. But, luckily, I’ve managed to create my own recipe.

Disclaimer- When you become a confident baker, recipe’s start becoming almost like guidelines, they’re there but you don’t have to follow them. With that said, whilst I consider myself a confident baker, I never said I was a great one.


Cinnamon Palmiers:

55g Sugar + spare to use
2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
Ready rolled Puff pastry

To make things simpler, I use a ready rolled puff pastry. This just saves the time of having to roll out a block but it’s up to you. Remember to take the pastry out of the fridge before making the sauce.

Gently heat up the butter in a pan until melted. Keep it on a semi-low heat and slowly add in the sugar whilst stirring to keep a runny consistency. Once that has dissolved, add the cinnamon to the sauce. You’ll end up with a thick runny brown coloured sauce.

Roll out the pastry, making sure it’s flat before spreading the sauce over. Reach all the corners so everything is covered. Once the pastry has been covered, sprinkle a little sugar over the top. Remember to save the rest of the sauce for later.



The next bit is both the fun and tricky part. On the longer sides of the pastry, start rolling the edges towards the centre. Make sure the rolls are tight as this will make the round circles of the palmier. 

Place back in the fridge, wrapped in clingfilm for another 20 mins for the pastry to cool again.

After 20 mins, take the pastry out and unwrap the clingfilm. Get a knife and cut 1.5/2cm thick slices. Place them, with the spirals facing up, on a baking paper lined tray. Once all the pastry has been cut, use the leftover sauce (it may need reheating) and spread over the pieces, sprinkle a little more sugar over them for an extra crunch.

Place in the oven (200 degrees) for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown. 

Bon Appetit!
