Heart-ier Palmiers

HeartPalmiers1I wanted a pretty and snackable pastry that could show a little love for my guys. With only minor tweaking, the classic palmier, or elephant ear, can be coaxed into a heart shape and livened-up with raspberry jam.

(Too much raspberry jam, here, made my baking sheet look like a bit of a crime scene.)

In this case, I made my own puff pastry from scratch (not to show off*) because I wanted to practice the skill. However, if you bought ready-made puff pastry this can be one of those rare things that’s easy, awesome-looking and super tasty.

A Triple Threat

The heart shape became much more rounded in the bake, but still fetching
