Easy Sweetheart Palmiers


1 package of frozen Puff pastry, defrost according to directions on the box. Do not let it come to room temperature though

1/4 to 2/3 cups granulated sugar, may need more or less

Pink chocolate buttons/drops/melts, Wilton or other brand Sprinkles, if desired  


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper.

On a clean counter or cutting board,  liberally sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Take ONE of the thawed puff pastry sections out of the package (the box comes with 2 sections) and lay it on top of the sugar. Roll the pastry into a rectangle of just over an 1/8″ thickness.

Sprinkle the rectangle lightly with sugar.

Working from a long side, roll it together, not tight, but snug to the middle.

Repeat this with the other side, so that both rolls meet in the middle.

Before baking, leave the cookies as is, or loosen the center a bit and form a point to create a heart when baked.French Palmiers

Bake for 15-22 minutes, depending on the size of cookies and your oven. Bake to a light brown yet make sure the center of the cookies are baked through. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.   You can use the parchment paper for another batch of these same cookies. When cookies are all baked and cooled, place about 1/2 cup of the pink chocolate melts into a microwaveable bowl.
