Sun-dried Tomato and Chive Palmiers
Today I am featuring an adapted recipe from Baking Made Easy by Lorraine Pascale. I received this recipe book for Christmas and have finally found some time to have a good look through it. This is not a book to cook from if you are dieting as the main categories for the book are:
Desserts & Patisserie
There are however, lots of great recipes in the book - a very high percentage of which are vegetarian, or could be adapted to be vegetarian.
When I came across these Palmiers, I thought that they looked really easy to make and would also taste delicious. I am happy to report that I was right. I used fresh chives rather than fresh thyme to make them and I also used pre-bought store puff pastry which is always handy to have in the house. Rather than cutting the sun dried tomatoes and chives with a knife, I used some kitchen scissors to chop them up which I always think is much quicker and easier.
These Palmiers make a great after school snack, and also make great Canapes too for the grown-ups. I will be cooking more recipes from Baking Made Easy and will report back to let you know how I got on!
