Nutella Palmiers (2 ingredient;Sweet cookies from Puff Pastry Sheet)

The word 'Palmier' may sound weird and complicated but the recipe sounds very simple and kids will definitely love them.Easy to prepare for a small kitty party for kidoos and am sure you will be the limelight.The word 'palmier in french means palm trees ;the shape of these cookies resemble that of palm leaves.Originally these palmiers adopted the middle eastern influence of layering thin sheets of pastry and filling sweets and spices(baklava) but some say it originated from Vienna ..the debate goes on .Anyway thats not part of the recipe and we should be bothered to grab these melt in mouth cookies,right :-)

Elegant puff pastry sheet cookies have become our favourite cookies.It feels so fancy to line them n the tray and so crispy and buttery feel..can't put in words!!These cookies are made by rolling a the puff pastry sheets towards the centre  from both sides and cutting them into 1/3 inch thick.This recipe requires complete thawing of pastry sheet ,otherwise the folding may not be appropriate.

puff pastry sheet 1
nutella 5-6 tsp (thin layering the sheet)
Sugar to dust

Thaw the puff pastry sheet completely on a parchment paper.Spread it like a sheet and apply thin layer of nutella all over one side.Start rolling tightly from one side and reach the centre ,repeat the same n the other side until you reach the centre.Cover it with a cling/plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.Pre heat oven to 425 degrees F and place rack in the middle of the oven .Uncover the pastry sheet after 20 minutes and start cutting in 1/3 -1/2 inch thickness.

Lined up in the tray for baking

Place it on a baking sheet with parchment paper with 2 inches expansion room and then press slightly with the back of a cup on each cookie so that it flattens slightly.Brush with melted butter and dust sugar on top.Place it in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and cool for 10 minutes on cookie sheet and then transfer on wire rack to complete cooling.Serve or store in air tight containers.

* You can use brown sugar,Cinnamon and sugar,citrus zest and sugar,or finely shredded cheese fr a savory twist.
*You may feel the cookies less crisp the second day but tastes delicious.
