These 4 ingredient Apple Butter Palmiers made with puff pastry are easy breakfast pastries to whip up for a party yet elegant enough to impress.
Happy May! I can’t believe it’s already May 2. May is my favorite month, not only because my birthday is coming up but also because I usually go on vacation this time of year. A time for me to take a week off work, get out of Pittsburgh, and explore another destination. This year I’m going on a road trip to St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Louisville. I’d love to hear your suggestions of things to do and places to eat as I’m still finalizing the itinerary.
Before I leave on vacation though, I’m going over to my parents to celebrate Mother’s Day. You may be planning brunch for Mom. I’m actually making Mom dinner with my pork wonton soup, but that doesn’t mean brunch is out of the question. I’m personally a sweet brunch girl; I’d rather have pastries and doughnuts than frittatas or a spring salad. Let’s be honest – how can you possibly choose a salad when these Apple Butter Palmiers are staring right at you? Warm, flakey bites of heaven made with puff pastry dough then stuffed with apple butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Palmiers are such an easy pastry to prepare with only 4 ingredients, yet they taste anything but simple. They start out with puff pastry dough, an ingredient I’m ok with buying because homemade puff pastry takes an entire day to make and chill before using it in a recipe. Then after slathering on some spiced apple butter and sprinkling with a generous dusting of cinnamon sugar, they are rolled up for an elegant presentation. They may not even make it to the table once you bite into one straight from the oven. One thing is for sure – Mom is going to love these.
