Be still my hearts!

Easy Peasy delicious

You need 1 tube puff pastry, granulated white sugar, cinnamon,parchment paper

Thaw your puff pastry in the fridge then roll out one sheet on parchment paper to measure about 10X12 inches. Sprinkle granulated sugar and cinnamon mixture all over one sheet of parchment paper, then transfer the rolled puff pastry onto it and press the bottom of the puff pastry so that the sugar sticks. Coat the top layer in sugar cinnamon mixture as well and press firmly. Make sure the longer length of the puff pastry is facing you. Gently with a knife, score a line down the centre of the pastry, being careful not to cut right through. Begin to shape the pastry, by rolling each side tightly into the center. Place the parchment and roll onto a cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes Preheat the oven to 450F. Take the roll out of the fridge and begin to cut approximately ¼ inch slices all the way down the roll. You will need to squeeze the bottom so that it looks like a little heart shape. Place each heart on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake them in the oven for about 10 minutes flipping them over at the 5 minute mark until they are golden brown and caramelized. The Palmiers can be eaten fresh out of the oven or when they have cooled down. They can be stored for a few days in an air tight container (that never happens). These would be great wrapped up for Valentine's Day for someone special. Good luck trying to resist!
