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 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,


  1. Great photos! They look good enough to eat!

  2. Beauties! They really are a great looking cookie!

  3. Beautiful! Love your photos, Chelly.

  4. I think that these will be on my Christmas cookie trays, too...I just loved them!

  5. 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!

  6. You are so silly! You're a great baker, too! I agree - these were quite addictive. Great photos!

  7. Yours look wonderful, great job!
