We first got this from Costco (A local wholesale supermarket). These biscuits stirred many memories of his childhood days, and my husband was very  happy to be eating those kind of biscuits , known as Palmiers, here in US. Needless to say they are very good. So instead of buying , I thought I should try making those at home and upon googling, I found similar recipes with lot more ingredients. I used the frozen puff pastry sheets by 'Pepperidge farms'. I wanted to keep it simple and tried this. They are very easy to make and requires basic baking skills. So amateur bakers out there, you gotto try this!!

Ingredients - 

Puff pastry sheet 1 
Sugar 1/4 - 1/2 cup (individual preference)
Cinnamon powder 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation - 

Thaw the puff pastry sheet for about 40 min as per the instructions on the package.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl. 

Pour and spread one half of the sugar/cinnamon mixture on a flat surface such as wooden board.

Unfold the puff pastry sheet onto the sugar and pour 1/2 cup of the sugar mixture on top, spreading it evenly on the puff pastry. 

Make sure the sugar is evenly spread throughout the sheet.

With a rolling pin, roll the dough so that the sugar is pressed into the puff pastry on top and bottom. 

Fold the sides of the square 1 inch towards the center on both the sides . Fold them again till each of the sides reaches the center. 

Then fold 1 half over the other half as though closing a book. 

Now slice the dough into 1 centimeter slices and place the slices, 1/2 inch apart so they don't stick to each other, on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. 

Refrigerate for a while until the oven is preheated to 400F.

Bake the slices for 10 minutes until caramelized and brown on the bottom, then turn with a spatula and bake another 10 minutes, until caramelized on the other side. 

Transfer to a cooling rack. Store it in an air-tight container after cooling. We didn't need to store it :)

Makes approx. 20 
Preparation Time  30 min
