How to Make Palmiers (Elephant Ears)

Method

    Jus-Rol™ Frozen Puff pastry Sheets are perfect for this classic recipe - however if you are using Jus-Rol™ Frozen Puff pastry in block form roll out as described in the 'Rolling out Puff Pastry' section to an oblong shape approx. 3-4 mm deep.

    1. Unroll the defrosted pastry sheet and lightly brush with beaten egg.
    2. Lightly sprinkle surface with the grated cheese , sugar or whatever you are using for flavour.
    3. Lightly mark the width of the pastry into thirds at one end and fold over one long side to meet the nearest 'third marker'.
    4. Repeat with opposite side of pastry sheet.
    5. Now fold in both these sides again to the same width as the first fold.
    6. Lightly brush with beaten egg and sprinkle again with cheese.
    7. Finally fold one long side over onto the opposite side so that you end up with one long, narrow shape.
    8. With a sharp knife slice the pastry at an angle into 1 cm / 1/2" lengths.
    9. Lay these cut side down on a lined baking sheet and brush lightly with beaten egg before baking.
