baked sunday mornings: election day palmiers

Palmiers2

Oh man, these were good.  I almost didn’t make them, even though I’ve been waiting for the past month to dive into Baked Occasions with Baked Sunday Mornings.  The week slipped away from me, as it tends to do, and when I saw this was a laminated dough I was like ehhhh… it’s going to take so much time.  Then, this morning, I decided to just go for it – nothing like waiting till the last minute on a recipe that you’re already worried is going to take forever.  Well, surprise surprise – even though there are a bunch of refrigerated wait times, the recipe itself is SO easy! For all the folding and rolling, the dough is actually really easy to work with, and the flaky layers you get in the end are totally worth it.  I also almost left out the cayenne pepper, but I’m really glad I didn’t! It’s subtle and provides a really interesting extra flavor.  I did reduce it down to 1 teaspoon instead of 1 1/2, though.  The only other change I made here was an increase in the baking time – after the designated time, mine were still kind of wet and the layers in the middle of the cookies weren’t quite separated or flaky just yet. Other than that, the recipe was perfect and easy to follow.  I could see these making a good addition to some Christmas cookie platters…

  3. Nice job, Ali! I know what you mean, I was kind of dreading making the dough, but then it was like, what’s the big deal? They were soooo good. I will reduce the cayenne next time like you did, as I thought the 1 ½ tsp. was a touch too much. I’m glad you made them in the end– it was a nice way to start off the book! :)
