Here is the final installment of the series of holiday appetizer recipes from California Walnuts. Here is recipe that I just know my palate and my hubby's palate would love! Walnuts, apple jelly, honey and cinnamon you say? all on a puff pastry? Count me in! What I like about this recipe is the simplicity of it all. If you serve this one to guests, I would recommend serving this apple pie-like cookie with some vanilla ice cream.

Makes 32 palmiers

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F

Baking time: 35-45 minutes

  • 2 cups California walnut pieces, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup apple jelly
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 (450g or 16 oz) package of puff pastry, thawed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine walnuts, apple jelly, honey and cinnamon.

Divide mixture between two sheets of puff pastry and spread mixture evenly. To shape the palmier, roll one edge of pastry to form a pinwheel; stopping at the middle. Roll the opposite edge to make a second pinwheel. Repeat with the second puff pastry sheet.

Transfer the palmiers onto a cutting board or plate and cover with plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

After the palmiers have been refrigerated for 30 minutes, remove them from the fridge and slice each palmier roll into 16 even slices and place onto a baking sheet. Bake one sheet at a time on the centre oven rack for at least 35-45 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
