Here’s the secret of traditional all-butter palmier biscuit

The authentic all-butter palmier biscuits only require 2 ingredients to get prepared: completely defrosted all-butter ready-made puff pastry and lots of granulated sugar.

- Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of sugar over your workstation.
- Roll out the puff pastry to about 15x12 inches.
- Using a pastry brush or spoon, spread the sugar to evenly coat the surface of the dough.
- Starting at the long ends of the rectangle, gently roll each side inward until they meet in the middle.
- Let the dough chill in the fridge for 30 min at least.

- After the chilling, preheat oven to 400°F.
- Starting at one end, cut off pieces of the log, in slices about 1/2 inch in thickness.
- Press gently the two sides together to make sure that they don't unroll during baking.
- Dip each side of each biscuit into sugar, shaking off the excess.
- Place the biscuits on a parchment paper lined sheet pan, at least 2 inches apart as they will increase size dramatically.
- Place the biscuits in hot oven and bake until golden brown.
- Remove them from the baking sheet and let cool for 10 minutes.
