Nutella Palmiers

Annamaria Settanni McDonald


I love this recipe because it is so easy and oh so yummy. Palmiers mean Palm Trees. I guarantee this will become one of your favorite desserts, a nice change to the typical palmier. It's flaky and tender with the decadent taste of Nutella with a bit of crunch from the nuts. These are great wrapped up in cellophane and tied with pretty colored ribbon for a beautiful gift for a loved one.

15 Min


15 Min


13 oz
package of frozen puff pastry, thawed
nutella spread
1/2 c
finely chopped hazelnuts
granulated sugar for sprinkling

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 450'F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a rectangular shape about 15x9 inches.
Spread the Nutella evenly over the puff pastry, then sprinkle the nuts over the top.
Roll both long ends so that they meet at the center of the dough. Where the pieces meet, dampen the edges with a little water to join them together.
Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into thin slices. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a spatula.
Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with the sugar, then bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. When done, transfer to a wire rack to cool before serving.
Sprinkle Powdered Sugar over them to give a little added sweetness. (This was the plate of them that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed)
As a gift: When cool, lay palmiers in cellophane bag and tie with curling ribbon with a note. Enjoy!
