Palmiers (pronounced palm-YAY) come from France. They're usually sweet, but to make them savory, I swirl in pesto, feta and sundried tomatoes. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon

  • 1 package (17.30 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 1/2 cup feta or goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, patted dry and finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry. Whisk egg and water; brush over pastry. Spread with half the pesto. Sprinkle with half the feta and half the sun-dried tomatoes.
  2. Roll up the left and right sides toward the center, jelly-roll style, until rolls meet in the middle. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet and ingredients. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Cut each roll crosswise into 12 slices. On baking sheets lined with parchment, bake palmiers until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.
