An Easy App

I made these for a brunch I was having with a couple friends, and in case you haven't tried them, thought it would be best to share!! Quick and tasty, everyone's sure to be impressed!

Sundried Tomato Pesto Palmiers

These extremely versatile scroll-look-alikes are really a blank slate for your creativity. Keep it simple with cheese, try pesto, or take it over to the dark side with some semisweet chocolate for a sweet treat ;)



Sundried Tomato Pesto Palmiers
Yield ~40

1/2 package puff pastry (1 sheet of dough)
Sundried tomato pesto (click for the recipe I used)
Gruyere, finely grated

Defrost puff pastry in the fridge before you want to use it (I took it out the night before so I could make it in the morning). Roll out on a dry, lightly floured surface. Top with desired amount of pesto and cheese (or other toppings!).

Preheat oven to 400deg. Roll each of the long sides inwards so that the two meet. (Can be refigerated here if being prepared ahead. It could also help with the slicing) Slice (maybe 1/8") and transfer to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake 10-15min until nice and golden (mine were closer to 10min). Serve!

I hear they keep pretty well... if they last that long ;)

I've been wanting to make something like this with cheese and spinach forever. Actually bought the dough and it's been sitting in my freezer ever since, mocking me a bit. Yours look delicious! I'm sure they were a crowd pleaser :)

I'm always looking for good apps to bring to parties and gatherings and these look fabulous! I LOVE anything involving sundried tomato and gruyere. Oh and puff pastry too!

Palmiers are really great because of the blank slate type thing. I think sun dried tomatoes are a great idea. So much better than just chocolate... well different at least :)

DUDE! I'm so excited to try that pesto recipe! I just started reading this blog so I missed it when you made it before. I've been OBSESSED with pesto lately and am making it like a crazy person :)

Puff pastry rocks! It's such a lovely indulgence.

So when am I going to be invited to one of your parties? :-) Something tells me you are the hostess with the mostess!

Great appetizer for any crowd.

Looks wise, you can't tell it's that easy at all!

Sagan said...

Wow, those DO sound easy- and delicious! They look so classy too.

Jess said...

They look so fancy but are apparently easy. Nice!

Joanne said...

Oh wow, these are yummy looking. They wouldn't last a second with my family. I'm thinking they would be good with some nutella...

Kerstin said...

I can't imagine them lasting very long - they look delicous and are so pretty!

This is what I am making for lunch tomorrow - I have all three ingredients at hand. Thanks for a great idea!

Kelly said...

Those look so good. I always forget about packaged puff pastry I think because one time I noticed the pepperidge farm brand had transfats which I try to avoid but my guess would be the TJ"s brand does not. Those look amazing. Plus anything that's a palmier sounds fancy. I didn't know there were savory versions of palmiers though so those look unusual and lovely.

Hannah said...

Puff pastry is so handy to have just in case of occasions like this. I usually just do the traditional cinnamon and sugar version, but chai spice is my new favorite twist. I'll have to try a savory one some time soon!

Brandi said...

those look amazing! I love sun dried tomatoes.
