25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Palmiers

Oh puff pastry…you’ve been holding out on me. I had no idea that such fancy cookies were so easy! Puff pastry is something that I keep in my freezer in case of emergency, like last minute appetizers. Now, I have Palmiers in my repertoire of recipes to make when I have friends coming over.

I originally thought of using a recipe with everything made from scratch, but if pre-made puff pastry is good enough for Ina…well it is certainly for me as well.  I used Ina Garten’s recipe on Food Network and the video was so helpful! I also took a liberty and made the second batch of Palmiers with cinnamon. BOTH are delicious!

25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Angelettis

I missed a day yesterday, but I have a good reason! Yesterday was the famous holiday party for my husband’s company. Pitbull was the headliner! So needless to say, it was a pretty big deal. Anywho, not really an excuse but it was a busy day getting ready. I will make up for the missed day, I promise.

So on to today’s cookie, Angelettis! After all this chocolate, molasses, and peppermint, I thought it was time for something a little lighter.  These cookies are just that and the lemon was the change needed!
