I love to try out new recipes especially when they are quick, easy and incredibly tasty!
I had some puff pastry in the freezer and some friends coming for dinner, so I decided to try to wow them with my cooking prowess by rustling up some canapes that I had previously seen made by TV chef Lorraine Pascale. Palmiers are a fantastic place to start if you are new to making canapes because as long as you have some puff pastry you can be inventive with the flavours to put your own spin on them. The quantities below made around 20 palmiers and they were absolutely delicious when served warm.
- Pack of all butter puff pastry (I used half a pack of Sainsbury’s all butter puff pastry)
- 1 serving spoon of small amount of tomato and red pepper pesto
- 1 serving spoon of grated parmesan cheese
- Roll out the puff pastry into an oblong
- Lightly spread on your pesto (you can substitute pesto with anything else you fancy)
- Sprinkle on the grated parmesan
- Starting at one end, roll the pastry to the middle, then roll the other end to the middle so that the rolls join
- Slice to the width of around a pound coin
- Place palmiers on a baking tray, sprinkle on any leftover cheese and glaze
- Place in a preheated oven, at 200c for 15 minutes
