Palmiers/ Elephant Ear Cookies



Palmiers/ Elephant Ear Cookies/Butterfly cookies

This is one of my favorite cookies. It is crispy and crunchy butter cookies. It looks fancy yet is simple and unbelievably easy to  make. It is flaky pastry with slightly caramelized sugar and is a great holiday treat.Serve this with a cup of tea and enjoy!

Ingredients
Puff pastry -1 sheet
Granulated sugar- 1/2 cup
Cinnamon- 3/4 tsp
Cardamon powder- a pinch
Salt- a pinch


Mix sugar,cinnamon powder, cardamon powder and salt and set aside.

Thaw puff pasty as per instruction. Dust half of the mixed sugar on the working space (wooden board or marble)and spread the puff sheet on top of the sugar. Dust the rest of the mixed sugar on top on the pastry sheet. Spread the sugar evenly .Using a rolling pin gently roll on top so that the sugar gets pressed on either side of the pasty dough ( work quickly because sugar will soften the dough).
 Fold the pastry dough starting from the corner towards you to the inside. Continue folding and stop when you reach half way at the middle. Turn to the other side of the pasty sheet and do the same. When both the folds meet at the center bring together, one over lapping the other and slightly press with the rolling pin. Refrigerated this for about half an hour so that the dough becomes firm.


Pre heat oven to 350 degree F. Cut the pasty into thin equal sized slices (I got about 24 pieces). Layer on a greased baking pan leaving some space between, as these will expand. Bake for about four or five minutes and then flip over these cookies( use a spatula) and bake for another two to three minutes. Transfer to cooling rack and when completely cool transfer to air tight containers.

Hope you will all enjoy!
