Peppermint Palmiers

Today is Day 3 of Christmas Cookie Week......

This week-long event is being hosted by Jolene of Jolene's Recipe Journal.  I hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful shared cookies and have gotten some great ideas for your holiday baking. Let's take a look at today's cookie platter................

Peppermint Palmiers

Leave it to the French to turn delicate pastry into a delectable cookie.  Leave it to Americans to make these cookies their own by adding a seasonal touch like peppermint candy sprinkles.

These cookies take only minutes to make but you need to start with fresh or thawed frozen puffed pastry and allow 30 minutes back in the freezer after the pastry is rolled, sugared, and formed into shape.

  1. What an easy and elegant cookie! They'd be perfect to whip up in a "cookie emergency" and I always have puff pastry in my freezer.

  2. Everything is better with sprinkles, right! What a great idea for a cookie!

  3. Why did I not buy puff pastry when I was at the market yesterday? These cookies MUST happen! They look so yummy and festive!

  4. Such a pretty cookie and it sounds easy to make too!

  5. I need to be like Karen and add some emergency puff pastry to my freezer! I haven't made palmier in forever and my kid loves peppermint so these will go over well here!
