Last Minute Life Saver Palmitos

Barcelona, November 23rd

Dearest ladies,

I hope you are all doing well! I am very sorry I am a little late publishing this post. Last week was a bit crazy between the organization of Thomas’ surprise birthday party and surprise trip to Valencia, but it was all worth it as Thomas was so surprised and we both had a great time!

So there I am, on Sunday night, having to come up with a delicious recipe for the blog, and very little time to do so.

That is how I remembered this great recipe that saved me so many times when I had friends over for tea or coffee. I even sometimes use it for dessert after a good meal.


It will literally take you 20 mns to make and will impress your guests. I can’t count how many times my friends told me how good they tasted and how impressed they were that I was able to prepare them while being so busy with a baby… They just didn’t know how easy the recipe is hehe!

For approx. 15 palmitos

1 roll of puff pastry

1 small bowl of sugar

1 egg yolk

and that’s it!



Spread the pastry on a chopping board, sprinkle with sugar to taste.



Roll each part of the pastry so they meet together in the middle.



Cut the pastry into little pieces, place them on an oven tray.



Spread the egg yolk on each piece, and add a little sugar on top so it will caramelize.

Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes, keep an eye on them though because cooking can vary from an oven to the other.











Tadaaa! They are done and ready to be eaten. Bon appetit!

    These little palmiers are so cute! I’ve also seen them done savoury-style for apéro (ex; with emmental cheese or pesto instead of the sugar). Definitely want to try!
