Paziols Palmier Biscuits

A very quick, very easy recipe that Annie often does at the last minute when the oven is still hot from the morning’s cooking. These crunchy biscuits go very well with the Jones Muscat and are named after the row of palm trees outside the church in the village of Paziols. 

Preparation time 10 minutes 
Cooking time 15 minutes 
Preheat oven at 180 C

1 roll of ready made puff pastry 
80g of sugar 

1. Unroll the pastry and sprinkle it evenly with the sugar. 
2. Roll the pastry from both ends until the 2 rolls meet in the middle. 
3. Put the pastry in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill and then slice the roll into 1 cm thick biscuits with a sharp knife. 
4. Place the biscuits on a lined baking tray and cook in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown 
5. Leave to cool and keep in an air tight container. 

Annie’s alternative 
As a savoury alternative, try covering the puff pastry with chopped black olives or goat’s cheese instead of the sugar.
