1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 (17 1/4 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C, and lightly grease two baking sheets.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Unfold one of the puff pastry sheets on a clean surface. Sprinkle evenly with a quarter of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Gently press the cinnamon sugar into the pastry. Flip the pastry over and repeat. Roll up each long side of the puff pastry jellyroll style to meet in the middle, forming the V shaped Palmiers. Tightly wrap and place in the freezer. Repeat the other sheet of dough. Remove the first sheet from the freezer and slice the log into 18 1/2-inch thick slices. Place each slice two inches apart on one of the cookie sheets. Repeat with the other log. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Flip each of the pastries over and continue to bake for 7-8 minutes, or until crisp and pale golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
Makes 36 palmiers.
