Palmiers filled with strawberry jam and shaped into hearts are a festive treat for Valentine’s Day. They’re also fun for little hands to make.
Gather your (very few) ingredients and equipment.
Use a spatula to spread jam onto a sheet of puff pastry.
Roll the sides in until they meet in the middle.
Cheeese! I mean strawberryyyyy! Though you could make these with cheese!
Roll one side of the rolled edge on top of the other like so, and chill in the fridge for 10 minutes (I just left the rolls on the cutting board and put the whole thing in the fridge).
Then use a serrated knife to cut them into about 1/2 inch pieces.
You may need to shape them into a heart by pinching the middle with your fingers.
Then sprinkle them liberally (and very precisely, it seems!) with sugar and bake until golden brown.
Cute and a little bit different for Valentine’s Day.
