Easy and Quick Cinnamon Palmiers

These easy cinnamon Palmiers are the perfect little accompaniment for a cup of coffee. Jump to Recipe

Crunchy and buttery, with the richness of cinnamon and sweetness of the sugar, it’s easy to see why I am addicted to them.

These take less than 30 minutes, and that’s because I cheat. I use ready made puff pastry, you are welcome to make your own though. I’m just lazy, so I grab a box of jus roll puff pastry. It even comes in a gluten free option!

It only takes four ingredients to make this lovely little treats, and no cooking skills at all (unless you make your own pastry).

Just add the pastry!

After sprinkling the sugar and cinnamon I like to press it in by gently rolling the pastry with a rolling pin, just so it sticks completely.

The hardest part for me is cutting them, you want to use a sharp knife or the pastry will stick to it and ruin the shape. The folding is a lot easier than it sounds, and once folded and cut you will need to leave enough space on the baking dish, to allow room for the pastry to expand. The thinner your slices the crunchier your Palmiers.

    I love this simple dessert. I often make these with left over pie dough too. Sweet and delicious.

    I’ve made palmiers in a pastry baking class before, but have never tried making them on my own at home… I love this easier version and the fact that they’re packed with cinnamon flavor!
