Palmiers look and sound so fancy. I absolutely love them as either an appetizer or dessert! The first time I made them was in culinary school when we learned how to make homemade puff pastry and I was hooked. Their shape is so fun and they are also so versatile. The filling possibilities are endless! Making puff pastry is really rewarding but it is also insanely time consuming. Thank goodness for the frozen stuff, which is what I used in these savory Italian palmiers!
Oh my goodness, I was so happy when I bit in. The crispy, buttery puff pastry was the perfect vehicle for those wonderful filling ingredients. It was so fun putting an Italian spin on the classic French pastries too! These savory Italian palmiers were such a simple and amazing appetizer! Hope you all enjoy them. xoxo
