3-Ingredient Palmier Cookies are sweet, buttery, flaky, and crispy. All you need is some store-bought puff pastry, sugar, and ground cinnamon. 


  • 1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Thaw Puff Pastry - You'll need to thaw the puff pastry before you can work with it. I prefer to thaw in the fridge according to the package directions. If you thaw at room temperature, make sure you only let it sit until it is just thawed - you don't want the dough to be warm or room temperature. 
  2. Roll - Sprinkle a layer of the cinnamon sugar (about 1/4 cup) on a work surface and place a puff pastry sheet on top. Sprinkle the top of the sheet of puff pastry evenly with another 1/4 cup of cinnamon sugar. Use your rolling pin to gently press the sugar into the puff pastry and smooth out any creases. You can roll it out slightly to make the edges even - you're not trying to make it very thing, but just an even rectangle. Tightly roll each long side of the pastry to the middle. 
  3. Chill - Wrap the palmier log tightly in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Repeat with other sheet of puff pastry to make two chilled logs.
  4. Slice - Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove the plastic wrap and slice the chilled log into 1/2 inch cookies. Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. You will need to bake in batches.
  5. Bake - Bake until golden brown - about 13-15 minutes. I like to let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.The cookies can be served warm or at room temperature.
