12 servings




Macadamia Palmiers

cup roasted macadamia nuts
cup sugar
tsp cinnamon
pkg puff pastry (2 sections per pkg)
cup unsalted butter, melted
sugar, for dipping

Chocolate Dip

oz white chocolate or bittersweet chocolate, chopped OR a combination of both*
*1 cup chocolate chips may be substituted for 4 oz of chopped chocolate


Step 1

MACADAMIA PALMIERS: Pulse macadamia nuts in food processor with sugar and cinnamon to grind. On a lightly floured surface, stack both sections of puff pastry and roll out to 12 x 18-inches and ¼-inch thick. Brush pastry with melted butter and sprinkle with macadamia sugar. Starting from each of the long sides, roll pastry inward so the two spirals meet in the center. Brush along the seam where they meet with butter. If pastry is soft, chill for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375° F. Slice ¼-inch palmiers from roll and dip both sides in sugar, shaking off excess, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and leaving 2 inches between each other. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove tray from oven and with a spatula, flip palmiers over and return to oven to bake another 10 to 12 minutes, until deep golden brown. Allow to cool.

Step 3

Palmiers can be kept up to a week in an airtight container.
