A sweet, crispy pastry made by sprinkling puff pastry with sugar, which is then folded, cut into slices and rolled out. These expand into heart shapes as they cook and the pastry bakes until golden brown and caramelized. Palmiers may be served with tea or coffee or as a basis for a dessert with whipped cream and strawberries, or with ice cream or sorbet.
