Election Day Palmiers: Baked Sunday Mornings


This is our first recipe from the new Baked cookbook, Baked Occasions!!  I am so excited to start baking from this cookbook, I really enjoy baking along with this fine group of bakers.  I am not sure I am worthy, but I love to give as many recipes as I can a try, most of recipes I have baked from the other Baked cookbooks have been winners and many were first time bakes which were great learning experiences....like this one.


I have never attempted Palmiers, although have been tempted to on occasion.  I thought they would be really difficult, but I found these to be not as bad as I imagined.  The recipe included cayenne pepper in the cinnamon-sugar mix, which I fully intended to do, but there was no 
cayenne pepper in my spice cupboard, *sigh*  I thought I had some, 
I forged ahead, with disappointment, sans the cayenne. 


The dough had to be shaped and folded like a business letter and chilled several times which made this time intensive but the end result was worth it as these were light, crispy and so delicious. 


I loved them!


and I could have eaten them all...but 
I had to be happy with just one.

The recipe is here.
Make these....they are worth the effort!
I just may add these to my Christmas cookie line up!

Next up for the Baked group is Campfire Cookies. 
Sounds interesting!
See you then!

As Always,
Enjoy!

  4. Gorgeous, Chelly! I agree, the dough was very time-intensive... but I quickly forgot about that when I was shoving them in my mouth. ;-) I too was surprised that they were not more complicated to make. Your coils are beautiful, by the way!
