Palmier Cookies

Pin It Now!

When I saw the recipe for Palmier Cookies on Lidy's French Garden House blog last week I knew right away I wanted to make them! Then I saw that Andrea at Under a Blue Moon beat me to it! I guess this is going to be one of those things that sweeps through blogland like a virus...only it's a really good sweet and oh-so-yummy virus! These are so easy and so delicious! I took them to work earlier this week and quite a few people walked up and said "You MADE these?" Haha....little did they know that they were so easy! Impressive but easy...that's the kind of recipes I like! Thank you Lidy!

Now, don't those look yummy!

Thanks for stopping by....good to hear from you, Cindy.

I'm not much of a baker, but sometimes during the holidays I like to make cookies. These would be right up my alley. I would like to find out if the pastry sheets have wheat flour {probably do} as I'd love to eat these myself {can't have gluten though}. I'll have to check the box when I go to the supermarket. Thanks for sharing!

They came out so beautiful! I am not much of a baker, but these are so very easy. They make great gifts, when you can bear to part with them.:)

Cindy- I might just have to indulge and make these. They look yummy. I mentioned your blog on my thankful Thursday post today. It was about slowing down and I noted a few blogs that I enjoy reading. Of course, yours was one of them. :) Debbie

Hi, since some time I have been visiting your blog and I´m always impressed for all the beauty you post.
I live in Chile, southamerica, and have opened my blog with pictures of my house and garden. Perhaps you would like to see what happens here in the Cordillera de Los Andes.
Congratulations

Isn't it great to "WOW" our friends with our cooking skills, especially when something easy looks so complicated. :)

Oh, I might have to check those out. I saw a savory version of these in Ina Garten's Back to Basics cookbook this week. I've been cooking out of it a lot lately. They looked SO YUMMY! I'm glad to hear they are easy. I bet they're gone already!

Honestly your co-workers must just love you bringing them goodies every so often.

Cindy those look good but, I am more the Valentine Cookie (that you showed)type. In fact I had to print those sugar cookie/icing receipes. But, thanks for sharing this today. I found a sweet story that I posted today. Pop by & see if you like it. Have a great Friday! Hope you get a long weekend.

podso said...

These look like what we call "elephant ears." They come very large (size of your hand) or small like you have made. Can't imagine they are easy to make!

Oh no! Those look too yummy!

Melissa Miller said...

Yummy! They do look delish Cindy! I see you have a peanut butter cookie recipe listed on a previous posting. I've been looking for a good one to try out.
I have an apple puff pancake recipe from the FC cookbook posted if you want to check it out. It is delicious for a Holiday weekend brunch.

Have a blessed Holiday weekend. ~Melissa :)

I went and looked at the recipe, but I got confused with what you actually fold over like a book. I would sure like to try them! (I generally buy them at Sam's Club!)

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Ashlin, you fold each end over about 1/4 of the way towards the middle and then you fold those folds so they meet in the middle and then you take one side and fold it so it's on top of the other...that's the folding like a book. There are also some videos on youtube.com that show you how to fold them.

S and O said...

Wow your blog is absolutely STUNNING!!! I'm so glad I found it I will most certainly be coming back for more deliciousness!!!

Congratulations on a beautiful blog if I may say so, I am inspired!!!!

Ashlin said...

Thanks, Cindy! I read that and I could see where the folds on each side were occurring, but could not see where one side folded over like a book. Thanks for the tip about You Tube. You're terrific!

Ok, I may make these this weekend, these are by far my favorite cookies in the entire world. When I was a kid, we used to go to a bakery in Cape May, New Jersey that made really big ones and called them Elephant Ears. mmmmmmmm!
