Palmier cookies: Palmiers are light and lightly sweetened French pastries. In fact the word ‘palmier’ is derived from the French word for palm tree. These pretty pastries get their name because of their resemblance to a palm leaf.
Palmiers are often sweet although this same technique can be used for making a savoury version which we guarantee will be a hit at your next buffet!
