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.
