Expert Tips and FAQS
When working with puff pastry, my number one tip is to have your oven hot. I'm talking 220 degrees celsius fan forced. It must be HOT. So preheat for a good 20 minutes before commencing making these palmiers. Watch them in the oven, my oven delivers uneven temperatures, so sometimes the ones at the front right need to come out earlier than others.
You will be hard pressed to have any leftovers, but they also freeze well. Reheat if you want them super crispy, but otherwise they will be just fine.
