The ingredients needed for the preparation

To prepare this delicious recipe for puff pastry palm leaves with cinnamon and coconut sugar, you will need to gather the following

ingredients:

  • 1 puff pastry
  • 100g coconut sugar (or brown sugar if you can’t find it)
  • 1 level tablespoon of cinnamon powder
  • 30g melted butter

Note that you can easily adjust these quantities depending on the number of people or the desired size of your palm trees.

Preparing the cinnamon and coconut sugar filling

First , start by mixing the coconut sugar and cinnamon powder in a bowl. Coconut sugar has the advantage of being lower in calories than traditional sugar while providing a slightly caramelized flavor to your palm trees.

Next, melt the butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan over low heat. It should not be boiling but simply melted to facilitate application to the puff pastry.

Making puff palm trees

Step 1: Preparing the dough

Start by rolling out your puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface (to prevent it from sticking) and let it rest for a few minutes at room temperature. You can also prepare your own puff pastry if you are a fan of “homemade”, although this will take more time.

Step 2: Applying the Trim

To give flavor and crunch to your puff pastry palms, use a kitchen brush and generously brush the entire surface of the dough with the melted butter. Make sure to cover every corner well without adding too much to prevent the filling from coming out during cooking.

Once the butter is applied, spread the sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly over the dough. Don’t hesitate to use your fingers to spread this tasty filling. However, be careful not to press too hard so as not to tear the puff pastry!

Step 3: Making the palm trees

Once your ingredients are evenly distributed, gently roll one side of the dough towards the center then do the same with the other side. This will give you two rolls of dough that meet in the middle. It is essential to be gentle during this step to keep the shape of the palm trees intact.

Then, lightly moisten the edges of the two rolls so that they adhere to each other. This will make cutting easier and prevent the filling from escaping during cooking.

Step 4: Cutting and cooking

Then cut slices approximately 1 cm thick from your double roll of dough and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper or a silicone mat.

Preheat your oven to 180°C (thermostat 6) and bake your puff pastry palm leaves with cinnamon and coconut sugar for around 15 minutes. Monitor the cooking regularly to prevent them from browning too quickly. The palms should be nicely browned and crispy.

Once cooked, let your palm trees cool for a few minutes before eating them. They are as pleasant warm as they are cold, depending on your preferences.

Little tips to make your puff palm trees a success for sure

  • To vary the pleasures, do not hesitate to personalize your garnish by adding lemon zest, orange zest or even pieces of chocolate.
  • When cutting, you can dip the knife in hot water to make cutting easier and prevent the dough from sticking to it. Remember to wipe the blade between each slice so as not to damage your palm trees.
