Maple and Pecan Palmiers

Maple and pecan palmiers

I’ve only recently discovered Palmiers – I’ve seen them before but always thought they looked a bit complicated and too much faff. How wrong I was. They look impressive but only take 4 ingredients and less than 15 minutes from start to finish. And that’s before you get to the taste – Gorgeous!


* 1 packet of ready rolled puff pastry (slightly defrosted if frozen but the colder the better)
* 25g butter melted
* 4 tbsp maple syrup
* Large handful of pecans, roughly chopped


* Preheat the oven to 180C & Spread the puff pastry out on a flat surface
* Melt the butter and take off the heat. Stir the maple syrup through until combined.
* Paint the butter/syrup on top of the pastry with pastry brush.
* Sprinkle over the pecan nute.
* Roll the pastry from each end until the two rolls meet in the middle.
* Cut into 1cm slices – You can freeze for 10 mins if you think the pastry will be easier to cut but I’ve never needed to.
* Bake for approx 12 mins until golden and crispy
* Leave to cool if you can and dig in!

There’s all sorts of combinations of palmiers out there. I sometimes cut my pastry in two so I can get 2 different flavours out of the one packet. Nutella Palmiers are very popular with my kids and even quicker to make than this recipe.

Unsurprisingly, there are tons of Palmier recipes on Pinterest. I’m hoping to have a go at some savoury ones very soon – Red Pepper and Pesto sound divine! I’ve put together a Palmiers Pinterest board for more ideas – Have you got any combinations that you think would make a good Palmier recipe?
