Ham and cheese palmiers
February 16, 2011

Finally starting to post those recipes I’ve been talking about ! Here is one of the two palmiers recipes I made with mom the other day. Depending on the size you’re giving them, you can serve them as starters, as a whole meal and also when in small size along with drinks 🙂

they’re the ones on the right side 🙂


– Puff pastry (preferably the blocks that you have to roll, it makes it easier)
– fresh cheese (here we use portions and it takes around 4 small portions)
– 4 slices of ham
– grated cheese


First roll the puff pastry as a rectangle, get something nice, not too thin.
Then spread the fresh cheese on it, make it even.
Put the ham slices on top of the cheese.
Then here is the tricky part, the rolling:
First fold the two sides to the middle (both side should be next to the other on the center of the puff pastry rectangle).
Then fold it again on the middle, same as before. Don’t hesitate to make it tight.
Then put it in plastic wrap, making it tight again. Place in the refrigerator or even better in the freezer  for around 30 min, that will make them easier to cut.
Then cut them (around 1cm thick) and put them on a dish with baking paper. Put a bit of grated cheese on top and put in the oven (180°C) for 15 minutes.


Enjoy !
